ACCESSIBILITY REQUIREMENTS FOR PRIVATE U.S. ONLINE POSTSECONDARY SCHOOLS AND BENEFITS TO STUDENTS WITH LEARNING DISABILITIES: A LEGAL ANALYSIS AND REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE

Laura POLICAR, Tracy CRAWFORD, Melissa STOCK, Vita ALLIGOOD

Show Abstract

Abstract:

While postsecondary online classes have become increasingly popular in the United States, they have also
brought increased concerns about lack of access to online classrooms for students with learning disabilities. Title
III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) does not address commercial websites, so no specific
guidelines define how private online postsecondary schools can ensure accessibility. As a result, students with
learning disabilities have varying degrees of access to private online college classrooms, and private
postsecondary schools fear discrimination lawsuits resulting from the lack of accessibility. Many of these
schools have voluntarily put measures in place to try to ensure that their online classrooms are accessible.
Guidelines that many schools are voluntarily following include Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (Section
508), the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), and/or Universal
Design for Learning (UDL). Accessible classrooms greatly benefit students with learning disabilities,
empowering many to succeed without needing to disclose their disabilities or request specific accommodations.
This article examines the current state of U.S. accessibility law as applied to private online postsecondary
schools, identifies the most widely-used accessibility guidelines, and provides an overview of how students with
learning disabilities benefit from accessible online classrooms.

Show Abstract

Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to study the elements of distance teaching and learning forms or curricula via
internet network systems for the Bachelor of Music Arts degree in Higher Education Institutions in Thailand.
The researchers have studied distance teaching and learning forms by way of collecting documents and related
research in order to analyze and synthesize the elements of distance learning forms by means of the principles
and theories associated with such forms via the internet network systems, particularly with regard to the concepts
of distance teaching and learning forms for the Bachelor of Music Arts degree in Thai higher education
institutions, and the principles and concepts of research and development as they relate to teaching and learning
forms, the contexts of teaching and learning music programs in Thai higher education institutions, and the
criteria for introducing a distance learning curriculum. The study finds that distance learning forms via the
internet network consist of a number of inputs that influence achievement. These are as follows: 1) instructors, 2)
learners, 3) contributing factors, 4) teaching and learning environments, 5) teaching and learning activities, 6)
teaching and learning technologies, and 7) Music Arts curricula.

Show Abstract

Abstract:

The E learning institutions are providing most effective way of education with many Socio-Economic benefits.
In developing countries of Asia, people have limited financial resources whereas major portion of population is
living in backward rural areas. Due to limited resources, the only solution is E learning (EL). Pakistan is also
facing many problems for promotion of education in backward rural areas; therefore, Higher Education
Commission of Pakistan has provided funds to different universities for starting EL (e.g. UMT, Gomal
University etc.). The EL study system has its own challenges. One of the biggest challenges is how to retain
students and to minimize the dropouts. There are many factors that are playing a vital role in dropout of students
in EL institutions. The purpose of this paper is to highlight major factors/reasons behind the student dropouts in
Pakistan, their trend in upcoming years and how to minimize/control these factors. The study also includes the
analysis of dropout students in a leading EL university of Pakistan

THE ATTITUDES AND EXPERIENCES OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHERS ENGAGED IN DISTANCE STUDY PROGRAMS IN SERBIA

Marina Djukic Mirzayantz

Show Abstract

Abstract:

The introduction of distance learning study programs represents an innovation in a country’s educational policy.
In Serbia, distance education is still in its infancy. Although some higher education institutions have recognised
its importance, few of them have included foreign languages in their distance study programs. This paper
attempts to reply to the following questions: 1) Are foreign language teachers in Serbia technically and
methodically trained for distance language teaching? 2) Are they satisfied with the achievements of their
students who learn foreign language at a distance? 3) Do they support the introduction of new measures, and if
so, which ones, in the aim of improving distance language learning? The conclusion drawn is that foreign
language teachers in Serbia do not have sufficient knowledge and skills for the successful implementation of
distance language study programs. Faculties in Serbia whose distance studies programs include foreign
languages have a great responsibility in terms of the organisation of appropriate training for foreign language
teachers. On the basis of the presented position, directions for improvements to current practice are proposed.

performance of secondary school students. For that purpose, the researchers randomly selected 20 students from
two 9th standards of two English medium secondary schools of Silchar Town, Assam, India to conduct the
experiment. Quasi Experimental Design based on Regression Analysis used to assess and relate the effects of
variables. 10 class IX students of school 1 was counted as the YouTube learning Group, and 10 class IX
students of school 2 was assigned for Skype learning. It resulted that perceiving, feeling, introversion and
intuition has the hierarchical significant relationship with YouTube learning performance, however,
extroversion, sensing, thinking, judging, has no significant relationship with YouTube learning performance. It
