    • Unique features of e-learning
    • E-learning outreach
  • 1. Unique Features of e-learning
    • E-learning is the only window to the knowledge world for some people.
      • People with disability
      • People alienated
      • People not affordable for classroom training of high quality
    • Only e-learning can accommodate for the individual learner.
      • Learner control
      • Learner preference
      • Sustainable (human) contact with learners

    • Avoidance of Proprietary Technologies
      • ActiveX
      • Extended tags(element, attributes), objects
      • Non-standard scripts, applets
      • Deprecated technologies
    III. Principles of Universal e-Learning
  • 1. Interoperability: Example
    • Viewport Independence
    III. Principles of Universal e-Learning > 1. Interoperability
  • 2. Accessibility: Norms
    • World wide
      • W3C(1999), Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0
      • US(1998), Section 508 of Rehabilitation Act
      • UK(1995), Disability Discrimination Act
      • Australia(1992), Disability Discrimination Act
      • IMS(2002), Guidelines for Developing Accessible Learning Applications
      • IMS(2003), Learner Information Package Accessibility
    • Domestic
      • 정통부 (2002), 장애인 노인 등의 정보통신 접근성 향상을 위한 권장지침
      • K-WCAG 1.0 (in processing)
    III. Principles of Universal e-Learning > 2. Accessibility
  • Assistive Technologies
    • For input and output
    III. Principles of Universal e-Learning > 2. Accessibility Braille Display Screen Reader Screen Magnifier Speech Recognition One Hand Keyboard Foot Mouse Joystick Eye Gaze System
  • Design guidelines for the disabled
    • Examples of design requirements for people with different kinds of disabilities include:
    • Visual:
      • described graphics or video;
      • well marked-up tables or frames;
      • keyboard support, screen reader compatibility;
    • Hearing:
      • captioning for audio, supplemental illustration;
    • Physical, Speech:
      • keyboard or single-switch support;
      • alternatives for speech input on voice portals;
    • Cognitive, Neurological:
      • consistent navigation, appropriate language level;
      • illustration; no flickering designs.

  • Accessibility: General Principles
    • Provide alternate access route.
    • Provide multi-modality.
    • Use gracefully transforming technology.
    • Think device independence.
    • Organize robust structure. (not necessarily same as “robust design”)
    • Think forward & backward compatibility.
    • Maximize user control.
    III. Principles of Universal e-Learning > 2. Accessibility
  • Accessible Learning Products
    • Content
      • Thomson NETg
    • Web Conference
      • Horizon Live, …
    • Learning Management System
      • Black Board, THINQ, Pathlore, ATutor
    • Authoring(Developing) Tools

    III. Principles of Universal e-Learning > 2. Accessibility
  • 3. Semantic Web
    • Semantic Web
      • provides a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across application, enterprise, and community boundaries.
      • is an extension of the current web in which information is given well-defined meaning , better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation.
    III. Principles of Universal e-Learning > 3. Semantics
  • Semantic e-Learning
    • HTML has already limited semantic features!
      • Link types
        • Alternate, Stylesheet, Next, Prev, Contents, Index, Glossary, Copyright, Chapter, Section, Subsection, Appendix, Help, Bookmark
      • Structural Markup
        • <h1>, <h2>, <q>, <dl>, <ol>, <acronym>, <title>, title,…
      • URI, Unicode, UTC
      • Correction history: <del>, <ins>
      • Metadata (DC)
    III. Principles of Universal e-Learning > 3. Semantics
  • Semantic (Learning) Material: Example
    • Semantic Presentation Slides

  • 4. Separation of Presentation
    • Content-Form Separation
      • Content creator needs to focus on content!
      • Designer needs to focus on how it shows!
    • How?
      • Use standard compliant, structural markups!
      • Utilize CSS and XML(including SVG, SMIL, MathML)!
    III. Principles of Universal e-Learning > 4. Separate Structure from Presentation
  • Separation of Presentation: Example
    • CSS Zen Garden

    • Business benefits
      • Increase market/audience reach.
      • Be ready for internationalization. (eg. caption, alt text, Section 508)
    IV. Benefits of Universal E-Learning
  • V. Yet to be Solved
    • Complex interaction (including simulation)
    • Traditional design practice
    • Universal learning environment
      • Authoring tool accessibility
      • Accessible application, OS
      • Assistive technologies
