Abstract

This paper introduces the European Unified Framework for Accessible Lifelong Learning project (EU4ALL). The aim of the project has much in common with the themes of the "e" Teaching and Learning Workshop. It aims to create a software framework using a service-oriented approach that can be interfaced to the existing generation of learning technology systems (VLEs). The framework will aim to enhance the accessibility of these systems by offering end users (both students and educators) a set of useful services. These services include the personalization of learning materials that match end users needs and preferences, services to present learning materials to hand-held devices or assistive technologies, and e-services that connect an individual learner to an institution to ensure that an educational institution can respond to the needs of learners to enable their full participation within higher education.
