The Visulibre Project: Open Enabling Technologies for the Visually Impaired

Published September 26, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

When planning for a new semester, we may want to consider a variety of approaches that make learning accessible to our students. It is important to consider the needs of all of our students. In 2019, I attended 2 higher education events that examined the question of how to ensure that our training is accessible to those who may have specific needs. During one of these I discovered the Visulibre project, which puts enabling technologies in the hands of visually impaired users. I recently spoke to Miguel Ross who leads the Visulibre project based in Quebec City with hopes of learning more about their mission and activities.

Published October 3, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

Short, concise video tutorials can be an effective way to explain theory or demonstrate a concept. Students can watch the video as many times as they need and the video can serve as a refresher material for students prior to evaluations. The cost to produce a video has diminished with the arrival of a number of free software tools and services that are provided for free to users. What follows is a proposition for a short workflow to create video tutorials using open source software and free services.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Learning Technology Advisor, Collège Sainte-Anne
Isabelle Senécal Director of Teaching, of Pedagogical Innovation and of International Development, Collège Sainte-Anne

The active learning methods have in common of placing the students in the middle of the learning process. Their teachers can then also think about giving them a role in the planning of the evaluation. Active learning is inspired by real-life contexts that are meaningful for the students, which can increase their level of motivation for the tasks that are suggested to them. It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
