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.
URC sockets are the base on whicpersonalised user interfaces can be build. Since they are the common base of all possible user interfaces they should be well designed an stable in time. These guidelines help to develop reliable sockets.
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.
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.
The Inclusive EPUB 3 guide is intended for content creators and educators who wish to use EPUB 3 and are interested in making their published content broadly usable by a full spectrum of users.
This guide covers a broad range of topics that will help make an EPUB 3 book more usable in different contexts. The information provided illustrates how concepts may be applied but won't make you an "expert" - you are encouraged to use this guide as a starting point and to follow the resources provided to gain additional insight.
AccessForAll metadata provides an interoperable framework for providing information about the accommodations a resource provides. This is particularly useful for matching resources to a user's needs and preferences. The AccessForAll Metadata guide in the Inclusive Learning Design Handbook provides a case study for how an authoring tool may generate metadata automatically.
This tutorial explains the creation of a socket for a very simple Todo-Service that we want to control. We will create the Socket with the SocketBuilder step by step and deploy it on a local UCH instance for testing purposes. By creating the Socket the three types of Socket Elements - variables, command and notifications - will be explained.
The Assistance on Demand service platform aims to ease people with disabilities search and find the service that better fits their needs. Through this course it will be presented the use of AoD platform form different users.
P4All Fall Detection Module is a module that detects falls (and/or potentially other human locomotion activities) based on the activity-related recordings of accelerometers. The core algorithm of the module has been built upon a neuro-fuzzy approach.
