Hi All! Maybe a good way to get started with this group is to introduce ourselves, what we do, our interests and experiences in Accessibility and Distance Learning, and why we joined this group.
Hi, I’m Karla. I am an Instructional Designer for Distance Learning and Instructional Media Services at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. My interest in accessibility and assistive technology began while I was an undergraduate student at The Ohio State University and developed through a series of research, employment, and continuing education opportunities. My personal and professional interests in accessibility now have to do with web accessibility and the accessibility of distance learning. I’ve joined this group for many reasons, I am always looking for new resources and research into the accessibility of distance learning and am now beginning to look at mobile learning.
I am very excited to be a part of this group and collaborate with each of you. I hope that we will be able to accomplish a lot in this group as the field of e-learning continues its rapid growth.
