Recorded: Tuesday, April 16th, 2013 @ 12:00 pm - 12:40 pm HST
Duration: 40 minutes
Online learning offers students with hearing or visual impairments new ways to pursue higher or graduate education. How can we contribute toward their success? Certainly some considerations and design steps need to be made at the learning management system or instructional technology level. But as instructors, how can we be more inclusive and welcoming to all students in our classes?

- Peer interactions, including class discussions and team projects.
- Faculty-student interactions.
