Online education is designed to open doors for students. Many students who might not be able to become a full-time residential student at a college or university or who want a particular course, find online courses of value. However, for prospective students with visual impairments, online learning may create more barriers than gateways.
Obtaining a college education is no easy task, but for students with visual disabilities, the path to completing a degree program is lined with unique challenges and barriers. Accessible Colleges Online has prepared a resource exploring how visual impairments impact the educational experience, what colleges can do, and includes numerous resources, including insight and tips from students and experts in the field.
