Iniesto, Francisco and Rodrigo, Covadonga (2016). Strategies for improving the level of accessibility in the design of MOOC-based learning services. In: International Symposium on Computers in Education (SIIE), 14-16 Sep 2016, Salamanca, Spain.

Abstract

Access to MOOC platforms has barriers: there is a lack of accessibility to educational resources, communications tools and even the personalisation of user interfaces. Added to this are difficulties such as the need to develop specific digital or even social skills for those students with functional diversity. Therefore, a vision of the different strategies in relation to the achievement of accessibility (from the content to user preferences) is presented in this work; strategies which must be tackled with the aim of achieving a better level of accessibility during the design of new learning services based on MOOCs.
