Although the movement in course materials in colleges and universities is clearly from print towards digital, the survey data suggest it will be a slow process. Asked when they thought the majority of their course materials would be primarily digital, fully a fourth of the surveyed faculty indicated “never,” while another 9 percent said by fall 2022, and 17 percent indicated by fall 2020. In contrast, fully a sixth (16 percent) reported that majority of their current course materials were digital as of fall 2015, and a third (34 percent) anticipated primarily digital course materials by fall 2018. However, despite what appears to be faculty resistance to going digital for course materials, just over two-thirds (69 percent) of the survey participants agreed/strongly agreed that they have used or would like to use “curricular materials that make use of adaptive learning technologies.”

Resources for the Inclusive Classroom. Inclusive Design Research Centre. What do we mean by Inclusive Design? We have defined Inclusive Design as: design that considers the full range of human diversity with respect to ability, language, culture, gender, age and other forms of human difference.

The Three Dimensions of Inclusive Design At the IDRC and the Inclusive Design Institute we stress three dimensions of inclusive design: 1: Recognize diversity and uniqueness Inclusive design keeps the diversity and uniqueness of each individual in mind. 2: Inclusive process and tools The process of design and the tools used in design are inclusive. 3: Broader beneficial impact It is the responsibility of inclusive designers to be aware of the context and broader impact of any design and strive to effect a beneficial impact beyond the intended beneficiary of the design. The Relative Nature of Disability and Accessibility The IDRC reframes disability within the design context. Why not use the term Universal Design? The distinctions we wanted to make were: Categories - Evaluating Web Pages: Questions to Consider.

Open Educational Resources (OER) The term “Open Educational Resources” (OERs) was created at UNESCO’s 2002 Forum on the Impact of Open Courseware for Higher Education in Developing Countries to describe a new global phenomenon of openly sharing educational resources in 2002.

This campaign to make freely adaptable content known as OER widely available has gathered momentum. Subsequently, a global community of OER producers has emerged and institutions are incorporating these resources into their teaching and learning strategies. OER is consistent with UNESCO’s constitutional commitment to “the free exchange of ideas and knowledge”. Learning materials freely available for adaptation and re-purposing can expand access to learning of better quality at lower cost. UNESCO with its partners has been working in this field since 2002 through the 1st and 2nd World OER Congresses and through related activities to support the use of OER to expand access to quality learning throughout life.
