Abstract

The accessibility community is responding to the challenges of Web 2.0 by adopting a more holistic approach to the provision of inclusive e-learning. It is based on the premise that an equivalent learning outcome, rather than a universally accessible single resource, meets the needs of individual learners more appropriately. This research suggests a solution to the creation of learning resources, which is based on the principle that learning content can be generated from adaptable aggregations of learning objects and media components using proven learning patterns. A transformation, augmentation, substitution service (TASS) encompasses methods to retrieve a learning object upon request by a user, adapt it and deliver it to the learning in the form in which it is required.
