Abstract

Learning technologies are becoming increasingly important in education. Many disabled people experience barriers in accessing education and therefore these learning technologies need to facilitate access to education for disabled people rather than generate additional barriers. There is therefore a need for development and evaluation methodologies for advanced learning technologies which take account of the needs of disabled people. The main aims of this paper are the presentation of a user-centred design approach for (advanced) learning technologies and its link to the comprehensive assistive technology (CAT) model developed by the authors and a user-centred evaluation methodology for learning technologies based on the CAT model.
