Abstract

Lifelong learning is a very important activity especially for disabled learners. Learning technology allows disabled learners to acquire knowledge and skills more conveniently and effectively. Designing a learning environment should consider accessibility in order to provide an opportunity for those learners to access learning material and information. Much research has focused on improving the discovery of learning materials suitable for the needs of those with disabilities. However, there is no standard approach to adaptive techniques for discovering suitable materials. Most current practice focuses on disability type without considering learners’ competence. This research proposes a model that addresses the challenge of accessible learning material based on people’s competences and functional capability. This model includes data preparation, matching, and presentation.
