Abstract

Changes in legislation, an emphasis on widening participation and the increasing reliance on online techniques for learning and teaching have contributed to improved opportunities for students with disabilities. The need to cater for the needs and preferences of the individual learner is presenting significant challenges for the learning designer. This research suggests a solution that is based on the principle that learning content can be generated from adaptable aggregations of learning objects and media components. This paper describes the concept of an authoring tool (LOTTI) that supports the design of adaptable, reusable and pedagogically rich learning objects using proven learning patterns and capitalises upon the recent focus of metadata standards for adaptability. We explore its potential within an accessibility service that maps the learners' profiles requirements against the learning objects features.
