Students with disabilities require unique support in the online learning environment. Many higher education instructors assume that all materials available online are accessible to all students (Cook, 2002).
Trace a page with your finger and Finger Reader will read it out loud for you. The device, currently in development by the MIT Media Lab, fits on your index finger like a ring. It can be used to assist children, the elderly, visually-impaired people, and second-language learners with reading labels ...
Dennis P. Garland's insight:
"Finger Reader is equipped with algorithms that give real-time feedback as it scans a page. A vibration lets the user know if they need to lift their finger up or down and also signals the end of a line."

Sending large files has never been so easy. Transfer big files up to 1GB to your friends for free with three easy steps!
Dennis P. Garland's insight:
Files to Friends – if you want to transfer a large file to someone, you are always restricted by file sizes, and which platform to use. Files to Friends allows you to upload files of up to 5GB (paid account), and 1GB (non-paid account), and then email someone the download link. File links do not expire either.

"What if there was a simpler way to figure out how to use the most popular tech tools in education? That’s the idea behind the new Global Education Database (GEDB) – it’s still in the very early stages but has an aim to be something akin to the ‘Yelp for Education’ thanks to the robust and brilliant education crowd around the globe. Each listing in the GEDB features expert reviews, pros, cons, tips on using each product in the classroom, what the product is good for (flipped classrooms, Common Core, etc.), and more."
