Students With Disabilities and Online Learning | Universal Design for Instruction in Postsecondary Education

Students With Disabilities and Online Learning | Universal Design for Instruction in Postsecondary Education | Sarah Linden | Scoop.it

"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). In fact, a recent survey of online instructors found that 80% did not consider the needs of students with disabilities, and 12% only partially consider the needs of students with disabilities when designing online courses (Bissonnette, 2006). This lack of awareness for students with disabilities in course design is especially pronounced given that approximately 11% of all college and university students have a disability (National Center on Education Statistics, 2009). Considering the needs of students with disabilities when designing online course content benefits these students, but will also benefit all students (Burgstahler, Anderson, Slatin, & Lewis, 2008; Dukes, Koorland, & Scott, 2009). This brief examines issues faced by students with disabilities in online/blended courses and strategies to address these issues as stated in the literature."

This short paper looks at the issues some students with disabilities might be dealing with when taking an online course, and then examines strategies to address these issues.

Marissa Kossoff's curator insight, June 17, 2016 8:36 PM
This is an important thing to think about because often times classroom content is tailored specifically for the general classroom and accommodations are simply adjustments to make. It might be more useful to create a lesson that accommodates to all abilities in the beginning.

Does the future of higher education lie in distance learning?

Does the future of higher education lie in distance learning? | Sarah Linden | Scoop.it

"By the year 2020, the college experience could be drastically different. One potential change is a move toward distance learning. In a survey by the Pew Internet & American Life Project of 1,021 Internet experts and users, 60 percent agreed with a statement saying that by 2020 'there will be mass adoption of teleconferencing and distance learning to leverage expert resources ... a transition to ‘hybrid’ classes that combine online learning components with less-frequent on-campus, in-person class meetings'.”

A new higher education online business model: Open and non-profit ... | Sarah Linden | Scoop.it

Online higher education 2.0 has arrived. It is open source, open enrollment and often provided by non-profit colleges. It has the potential to greatly expand access to higher education and to rapidly improve the knowledge base of global citizens. It is the antithesis of high-priced, online for-profit schools like University of Phoenix.

Teaching Every Student in the Digital Age: Universal Design for Learning

Teaching Every Student in the Digital Age: Universal Design for Learning | Sarah Linden | Scoop.it

This multimedia book provides hyperlinks to resources, interactive diagrams, videos of techniques and demonstrations, and downloadable pdfs with templates and frameworks for applying UDL. It offers a nice balance of theory and practice and is divided into two sections. The first four chapters address the concept of UDL and its underlying neuroscientific principles. The last four chapters address practical applications of UDL in the classroom. Because of its multimedia content, the book is engaging, easy to understand, and accessible to all learning styles. It is a great resource and must read for all educators, especially current and future online educators, who are interested in personalizing and differentiating instruction in the digital age.

Three Trends in Higher Education That Defy the Status Quo | Online Learning Insights

Three Trends in Higher Education That Defy the Status Quo | Online Learning Insights | Sarah Linden | Scoop.it

By Debbie Morrison

 

"There are three trends on the horizon in higher education and though I’ve some idea of what they might be, this past week confirmed it. I participated in a series of webinars in week two of the open online course, Current/Future State of Higher Education (CFHE12#). Leading educators shared their insights and innovative programs – three dominant themes emerged, 1) competency based learning, 2) personalized student learning and 3) the changing role of the instructor. Each presenter shared extensive research in an area of his or her expertise and details of an innovative educational program; programs that provide a non-traditional education that defy the status quo. The summary of the trends follow, with a ‘takeaway’ for each designed to provide readers with practical ideas for application to their own area of study or work."

Massive open online courses challenge higher education's business models

Massive open online courses challenge higher education's business models | Sarah Linden | Scoop.it

Elite universities with global brands — and those with at least national prominence — will be least affected by the sudden onset of "massive open online courses" (MOOCs), because they will always have markets for people willing to pay for the elite model of education, says a new report by the Observatory on Borderless Higher Education.
