Improving access to blended learning for disabled students

cBUS/UG/CP/02552 Title of study: Improving access to blended learning for disabled students

I am student researching the topic of accessing learning support on line for students with disabilities and I am looking for your views on the following questions.  You will need to be over 18 to take part in this study.  Answering the questions will indicate your agreement to take part in the study.

All participants will be anonymised.

Q1. Do you think on-line learning support is a good idea for students with disabilities? 

Q2. What types of on-line learning support do you think would be most helpful?  Please give any examples of learning resources and support you have experienced or someone you know has used?

Please could you indicate whether you are a student, tutor, learning advisor, or personal assistant/parent or guardian.

Thank you for your help with this.  You views will be used to inform my research findings.

    Yes, on-line support is a good idea, not only for learners with disabilities but for teenagers distracted by social concerns. My son was quite good at Maths, but he kind of wanted to do the social thing. I think if he could have accessed on-line support, it would have helped him with setting priorities and time-management.  Access to Maths videos such as are available on-line nowadays (my son is in his thirties) would have kept him focused on the subject.  I am a parent.

    1. Yes
    2. Online support would be beneficial providing it was thorough and interactive.  It would need to be delivered at a range of levels to engage a range of learners with different abilities.
