1 The Advantage of E-Learning in Inclusive Education: The Case of WEC- Learn to people with Disability Presented by: RUSAGARA Innocent Kigali Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) Project sponsored by: Worldwide E-Learning Campus (www.worldwidecampus.org ).www.worldwidecampus.org

2 E-Learning & Inclusive Education Motivation Differences and physical abilities of people are taken by the inclusive education as opportunities that can make the education system more responsive and dynamic Inclusive education helps both teachers and students to feel comfortable with diversity and see it as a challenge in learning environment rather than problem Distance education is a flexible and appropriate to inclusive education delivery Masalela

3 People with Disability What do you think as a source of their disability? Are you exempted from this? Are they unable of everything? Each year, UCC receives around 200 people with different disabilities from one district of Rwanda. How about their number in the world?

4 FORUM. They can enjoy the forum if they are provided the access. On what they are able to do, their performance can be best as no much of disturbance. They can obey when given a chance. They may like more online learning rather than face to face for several reasons: 1)It can be easy to them 2)They are less marginalized

5 WEC-Learn Flexible course creation (add video, module notes, assignment, quiz, multimedia) Text sizes controller Red Green Color Blind Approximation (user selects a color on site) Keyboard shortcut Playback (videos, reduce speed, revisit the steps ) Feedback (messages, forum, etc.) Accessibility Enabled Browser (System supporting zoom in, zoom out, etc.) Read aloud features Grayscale view (for better readability)

6 E-Learning Vs Conventional Inclusive Education Conventional Marginalization (poor, ethnic groups, minorities, p. with disability, etc.) Located very far (very difficult to attend, expensive, etc.) Exclusive infrastructures (non- adapted facilities to all) Categorization in education Duration (a fixed number of years) Cost (expensive) Possible arrangement between students and lecturers E-Learning (WEC-Learn) Equal opportunity (online, you get credit from your thoughts, not from your belonging group) Mobile (accessible anywhere, anytime, by anyone) Easy to adapt to any group of people(accessible learning). Same consideration Assessment online Very cheap No way to negotiate an arrangement with lecturers

7 General challenges on e-infrastructure & e-Learning Poor E-infrastructure Poor awareness Expensive infrastructures Expensive connection Politically motivated allocation (allocated where politicians have direct interests) Too much demanding to be afforded by all people

8 Conclusion General E-learning is flexible No marks negotiation and hence quality No discrimination (anyone can join from anywhere: equal opportunities) Not much expensive WEC-Learn Can be used by any university/school in any language. Accessible by a big number of people ( Inclusive ) Best option to people with disability Features adapted to Inclusive Education A ready made learning platform Cheapest and effective LMS. Everyone is candidate to disability, e-learning is the best to be adapted easily in meeting Inclusive Education

9 Expression of Interest: I.E awareness Joint research Resource/staffs sharing /Exchange Exchange programmes (online, sites visits, etc.) Awareness campaign (search NGOs, Government sponsors) Get a LMS from WEC-Learn
