Teaching the Hearing Impaired in a Learning Management System
In creating a learning management system, another group to consider is the hearing impaired. Training centers for the deaf and hearing impaired are usually located in big cities, making it expensive and often inconvenient to participate in these courses.
Including animated content and video are two ways to get the user more emotionally involved with the course material. The use of sign language is also an essential part of the procedure but just translating speech into sign language may not be sufficient. The content must be be highly usable in a visual manner. Again, the inclusion of such accessible features in a learning management system helps not only hearing impaired people, but others who may have difficulties in understanding written guides.
Designing a learning management system in a clear, visually stimulating way is of universal importance.
