Video Content and Learning

Video as a learning medium has become increasingly popular on the web. Many sites now even cater solely to video learning content (e.g., Academic Earth, TED Talks, Khan Academy). With the use of video as a compact and compelling medium, however, comes the responsibility of making it an effective platform for users with a myriad of different needs and preferences.

Design Guidelines for User Interface Sockets

Components of the UCH

Universal Control Hub 1.0 (ATR)

This Technical Report specifies the "Universal Control Hub" (short UCH) architecture. The UCH architecture is a profiling of the Universal Remote Console (URC) in the context of a Remote User Interface scenario.The UCH allows the application of the URC technology in an environment with non-URC compliant controllers and non-URC compliant targets. In this approach,the URC technology is implemented "in a box", with the Universal Control Hub acting as gateway between various controllers and various targets.

Audio Content and Learning

Audiobooks, podcasts, and lecture recordings are a popular way of delivering learning content. However, it is somewhat rare to find captions or transcripts for such content. The Audio Content and Learning guide on the Inclusive Learning Design Handbook covers topics such as enhancing audio with multiple modalities, and provides a possible design for an inclusive audio player.
