Creating accessible e-learning resources for disabled students.

2. Creating accessible e-learning

Key Points:

  • Make sure that resources can be accessed without needing to use a mouse.
  • Make sure that information provided in multi-media format is also available in accessible format.
  • Make sure that information is well structured.
  • Make sure that navigation through e-learning resources is as easy and intuitive as possible.
  • ‘text-only’ webpages are absolutely not a ‘silver bullet’ solution to accessibility problems.

Stop Motion Pro


What people are saying about Stop Motion Pro:
"If you have seen Clay Motion cartoons and wanted to do something similar then Stop Motion Pro is the program for you.
The program is ridiculously easy to use. It literally took me two minutes to show Computer Corner’s junior testers how to use the program and within five minutes both of them had completed their own thirty-second animation"

Use 3-d TWIRLER to design and texturize three-dimensional shapes. Then see how artists create these effects without a computer.

Wallovers are symmetrical decorations painted on a virtual wall. Select a grid, pattern, and background color, then create your own designs, or click the AUTODRAW button and watch the computer generate patterns for you.


Battle Painters is a simple multiplayer action game in which the person who paints the most percentage of the playing field in their color wins the game. You will play against three other players controlled by either the computer or human opponents.

The Ballarat Learning Exchange (BLX) is one of three educational precinct developments in progress in Victoria (the others are in Maryborough and in Gippsland) and will be owned by the Department of Education and Training Victoria but operated as a community resource.

The Ballarat Learning Exchange has been conceived and planned as a resource that will be available for all education and training providers within the Ballarat and surrounding area to use.

The Ballarat Learning Exchange will enhance education and training provision within the city and provide improved access to information on education, training and employment pathways. It will complement the Ballarat - a Learning City concept and support the development of a culture of life long learning. http://www.blx.vic.edu.au/

This section of the site is intended for educational developers, learning technology staff and others whose role is to support teaching staff in the use of educational technologies. The materials you will find here will help you design and develop learning opportunities for staff, especially structured programmes such as an ELT course.

The focus of ELT programmes is the appropriate use of technologies for the enhancement of student learning. The award, and the materials on this web site, do not offer 'how-to' guides to specific applications. Rather, they offer routes to the analysis, development and evaluation of teaching situations in order to make best use of the technologies available.

The Embedding Learning Technologies program is designed to assist teachers to integrate technologies into their teaching and learning programs. It comprises of a series of two-hour modules, with supporting resources to share how teachers and students in ACT schools are using learning technologies across the curriculum to improve student learning.

The modules can be delivered in stand-down, after school - or at any time that best suits the school and teachers. Teachers with high levels of expertise in these areas addressed will deliver the modules.
