At this weeks Community Meeting<https://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/Community+workshops> ( November 30, 2016 ) Francisco Iniesto is joining us to talk about Accessibility in MOOCs: The current state and next steps

“Providing accessible Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have the potential to offer flexibility of learning and benefits to all. In my research project I will investigate the perceptions and accessibility-related processes of various stakeholders of MOOC platforms such as designers, content providers and accessibility experts. I will also investigate the experiences, constraints and requirements of learners with and without special needs who are already using MOOCs.  I will carry out accessibility evaluations of MOOC platforms for their usability and accessibility. These are some of the questions my research is proposing to address: how can MOOCs help learners with special needs to improve their knowledge and skills?; how could the accessibility in MOOCs be improved?; and how could MOOCs resources be adapted to meet the accessibility needs of the learners?”
