Γιώργος Παπαναστασίου's curator insight, January 16, 2013 5:03 PM

Πόσο δίκιο έχει. Αλλά πώς θα ...βγει η ύλη; είναι το ερώτημα των περισσοτέρων από εμάς όταν φτάσουμε στο σημείο να αποφασίσουμε, να κάνουμε τη μετάβαση από τον "μαύρο"πίνακα, στον προτζέκτορα και τον Η/Υ.

Χρειάζεται χρόνος για την ουσιαστική μετάβαση και να απαγκιστρωθούμε από το "σχολικό εγχειρίδιο". Τότε οι δυνατότητές  μας θα είναι απεριόριστες.

Implementing the principles of universal design in online learning means anticipating the diversity of students that may enroll in your course and planning accordingly. These ten key elements will greatly enhance the accessibility and usability of your course for students with and without disabilities.

 

Step 1: Develop content first, then design.
Step 2: Provide simple, consistent navigation.
Step 3: Include an accommodation statement.
Step 4: Choose CMS tools carefully.
Step 5: Model and teach good discussion board etiquette.
Step 6: Use color with care.
Step 7: Provide accessible document formats.
Step 8: Choose fonts carefully.
Step 9: Convert PowerPoint™ to accessible HTML.
Step 10: If it's auditory make it visual; if it is visual make it auditory.

We have been doing this for the past three years.  Establishing appropriate standards for course delivery, look and feel, and consistency goes a long way in establishing the foundation for a good learning experience for students.
