The CISL suite will make digital educational materials accessible, flexible, and engaging for all students. While there are many lesson materials available online, these rarely take into account the needs of students with disabilities. To address this need, our three-part suite of tools ensures that all students will have access to compelling online learning opportunities. Students will be able to personalize settings to fit their needs, and the global preferences database will remember their preferences and apply them whenever they log in.
The CISL suite will include:
- a Discover tool, where learners can get support discovering personal learning preferences and needs to find what works best for them
- a Read tool, where learners can access digital learning materials using their preferences in a flexible, customizable digital reader
a Create tool, where teachers and curriculum writers get support creating accessible digital materials
UDL adaptivity: Our guiding vision
The suite of tools is designed to promote learner agency and transparency of process to support the development of expert learners. A student's default view of the reader is based on a discovery process. The system then has initial sense of which individual and contextually appropriate scaffolds to put at their fingertips. The discovery process is intentionally transparent, and a continual learning opportunity for students.
