Include Online: New online repository aims to provide students and lecturers with tools for accessible and inclusive digital learning

How is inclusive online education since distance and online education has become part of our everyday life? What are the issues that both students and lecturers face more when learning and teaching from home? These are only two of many queries higher education institutions had to confront during the digital transition. Having been greatly accelerated by the pandemic, this transition has raised new challenges raised new challenges, as well as many inclusive and accessible solutions for students and lecturers with educational support needs.

 

To promote the achievement of more inclusive online learning at all levels of education, including at a higher level, the Inclusive University Digital Education (InclUDE) project, have launched their online repository of digital learning tools.

 

The repository includes access to a number of tools, as well as guidelines for lecturers to help them to set up more accessible online teaching sessions and to make their teaching more inclusive. Building on the previous work of the InclUDE project and stakeholder surveys, the platform is a tailor-made resource designed to meet the needs of learners with special educational needs. The repository is aimed at Higher Education lecturers and professionals, as well as students and support service providers, but can also be used by members of the education sector more widely, to support the achievement of more inclusive distance learning at all levels.

 

The project is funded by Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and it is coordinated by the University of Wolverhampton (UK) with  Universit√§t Klagenfurt (Austria), Universit√© Rennes II (France) and the European Association of Service providers for Persons with Disabilities (Belgium) as partners.

Tools are available in English, French and German and users will also have the chance to submit more inclusive digital tools that could be useful for persons with special educational needs.

The result is an easy-to-use online resource to give every student a real chance to take advantage of digital education, leaving no one behind.
