Accessibility Evaluations

Moodle Logo

Accessibility evaluation of Moodle: Most educational centers are currently using e-learning tools to provide the pedagogical resources for their students, especially in higher education. Nevertheless, some students are not able to access to this information because these authoring tools are not as accessible as they should be. The main goal of the study is to obtain the accessibility problems of Moodle, for people with visual impairments.

Accessibility evaluation of MTurk: Crowd work websites such as Amazon Mechanical Turk enable individuals to work from home, which may be useful for people with disabilities. These websites must be accessible, if people with disabilities want to use them. To check the accessibility of MTurk, an accessibility evaluation following the WCAG 2.0 guidelines was performed.

Forums and Chats

Accessibility evaluation of CSCL Tools: LCMSs typically offer students and teachers a wide variety of tools to share materials, access and cooperate. Two of the most useful collaborative tools for the students are chats and forums. Still, some students cannot access and use these CSCL tools because they face accessibility barriers. As a consequence, these LCMSs do not comply with educational laws. The goal of the evaluation is to check if forums and chats are accessible in four of the most used LCMSs: Atutor 2.0.3, Claroline 1.10.6, dotLrn 2.4 and Moodle 2.0.5.

Accessibility evaluation of m-Chats: Some previous pedagogical studies have demonstrated the efficacy of commercial Chat applications as learning tools. Chats are useful for Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) purposes and students and teachers can communicate with each other through them easily. There is a huge amount of Chat applications for all kind of devices. But, can we use any Chat application for learning purposes? Are all chats accessible? These are the questions which aimed to be answered through this research.
