Thanks for all of your comments and responses to my question. Perhaps the relative success of using Wibbitz depends upon the platform (if that's the right term!) upon which the web page rests. Interesting idea though.

I've had nothing but success using this tool. I've used the RSS feeds from my scoop.it magazines to create a Wibbitz news feed that I've placed on several of my blogs. Platform: Chrome +PC

5 Accessible Design Tips for Blended Courses -- Campus Technology

5 Accessible Design Tips for Blended Courses -- Campus Technology | Ict4champions | Scoop.it
Revamping a course to be accessible to students with physical or learning disabilities can help make it more accessible to everybody else too.

 

Blended learning typically involves an element of student control over when, where and how learning takes place. But what happens if a student isn't very good with "self-direction, self-pacing and self-motivation"?
