Teach and Learn Online: Lawsuit forces Web2 learning strategies
A Masters Student in the US has taken his college to court, claiming that WebCT was inaccessible for him, and that it caused him to perform below his best.
The Chronicle of Higher Education, which reported on the case, also discusses the difficulty that Web designers face, given the lack of guidelines for Websites that may be used by those with a learning disability, as compared to the number of guidelines for those with sensory disabilities.
In his post, Leigh outlines what he’s going to do for his students next term – and that’s not going to include WebCT (or anyother VLE), rather, he’s going to use blogs, social bookmarks, web feeds etc. These are face to face students, though, rather than Online learners.
