We’ve written before on this blog about the promise of digital textbooks to improve the learning experience for students with special needs. Today, I’d like to take a closer look at the accessibility ecosystem that supports students on campus, and how we can help that community.
Not all educational content is created equal. Content used for learning anatomy requires lots of images and diagrams. Content used for learning to speak another language needs audio recordings. And math content usually requires math notation.
Since its launch in 2016, VitalSource Content Studio™ has become a valued tool for creators of learning content in higher education, K12, and corporate training—content such as IT training modules, leadership curriculum, an interactive workbook on human anatomy, computer engineering courseware, and more.
Mention the word “accessibility” and it can mean different things to different people.
In the context of delivering learning content, one application of accessibility is ensuring the same content is equally available across different platforms and channels to students of all abilities.
