Opportunities & Challenges for Online Students with Disabilities

A session at 9th Annual e-Learning 2.0 Conference

Friday 25th March, 2011

10:00am to 10:50am (EST)

Approximately 20% of the population and 11% of post-secondary students identify as having a disability. With increasing online enrollments, institutions must go beyond compliance and increase accessibility and support for students with disabilities. This session includes a panel of three students and one graduate with different disabilities who are or have been enrolled in online programs. The panel will discuss opportunities provided through online education and the challenges that they have confronted as online students. The panel will also discuss the importance of engagement and community development as well as strategies to develop courses, activities, and assignments in accessible formats to support student success.
