Research-based design

As we develop CISL tools, we are researching how different features may help us to support a wide range of learners’ needs. We want to know what the barriers to learning are, how they’re being addressed, and where more work is needed. Here’s what we’ve found so far. 

What features are we considering?

What digital learning supports should we prioritize in CISL tools? We’re continually reviewing research on digital learning supports. Explore different features, like adjustable line spacing and text read aloud, to find out what we have learned so far.

How accessible are open educational resources?

To learn how accessible some of the most popular digital learning materials are, we investigated open educational resources (OERs). OERs are popular all over the world because they’re free educational materials that anyone can share, improve, remix, and redistribute. While OERs have great promise to provide accessible content, in reality few OERs realize that promise.
