Abstract

Abstract: As more technology changes the learning environment for educators, this has caused a greater need for instructors need to focus on the syllabus, subject content, administrative tasks, and students with varying learning styles, they may also nee d to address various learning style of students with disabilities. As more universities provide teacher training, the training may not be detailed enough to help instructors be prepared to work with classroom accommodations for students with disabilities . In particular, online instructors have another factor to work with in this situation, they have to work with students with disabilities virtually and offer similar or comparable accommodations. More educational institutions are seeing that more studen ts are enrolling in online programs and courses, and they realize that there may be some additional barriers to learning in terms of this learning environmentâ ’s technical process and structure. In particular, students with disabilities are enrolling ev en more with online courses with the hopes of a barrier‑free environment. Thus, there are still some barriers still present in the learning environment in terms of technical/software application or interaction/communication problems. The purpose of this paper will be to look at how a university can address such problems and develop/create virtual solutions to these barriers by incorporating the help of others in the online community to brainstorm methods of inquiry and build virtual strategies. In part icular, there needs to be a special emphasis given to online instructors to become better prepared and trained with technology in terms of structure and how to motivate all types of students, especially students with disabilities, to become more interacti ve online. While there is a growing need for more human computer interaction, rather than just selecting and clicking single choices, students with disabilities are finding technology to be more enabling than disabling at times. Consequently, universiti es need to design and develop training progr

Abstract

Abstract: The paper introduces an evaluation model for examining an Information Communication Technology (ICT) value creation process based on a systems theory method, known as cross‑impact analysis. This method enables holistic understanding of interdependencies among the system’s elements, critical for successfully evaluating and managing the system. The evaluation process focuses on six dimensions of an ICT value creation system: drivers, outcomes, identity, goals, trends and its structure. Each of these dimensions has important implications for managing the system. Thus, the evaluation model presented in this paper integrates the evaluation and management of a system, with the purpose of enabling organisational stakeholders to use the evaluation as the basis for informed management of their ICT value creation system.
