At this weeks Community Meeting
<> (
November 30, 2016 ) Francisco Iniesto is joining us to talk about Accessibility
in MOOCs: The current state and next steps

“Providing accessible Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have the
potential to offer flexibility of learning and benefits to all. In my
research project I will investigate the perceptions and
accessibility-related processes of various stakeholders of MOOC platforms
such as designers, content providers and accessibility experts. I will also
investigate the experiences, constraints and requirements of learners with
and without special needs who are already using MOOCs.  I will carry out
accessibility evaluations of MOOC platforms for their usability and
accessibility. These are some of the questions my research is proposing to
address: how can MOOCs help learners with special needs to improve their
knowledge and skills?; how could the accessibility in MOOCs be improved?;
and how could MOOCs resources be adapted to meet the accessibility needs of
the learners?”
