Abstract

I wanted to help teach people who have intellectual disabilities and try help teach them in a manner in which they can understand through E-Learning. The problem I wanted to address was that the people I will be aiming the course at have ways of learning how to do everyday skills but the ways they are being thought are over complicated and they have difficulty understanding what it is they want to learn. To help address this problem I decided to build an E-Learning product online that can help teach people with intellectual disabilities to learn but in a clearer way.
So to do this I decided on a design for a website and decided what would be the best way of teaching the users with the product. I decided I would break the course down into three sections and a three step process, Step 1 being some light text instructions, Step 2 being a video with a demonstration on how to perform the task and Step 3 being an interactive phone that the user can try what they are trying to learn on.
I filmed all my own my own videos which I then edited myself with Sony Vegas video editing software and all videos were hosted online and were embedded in the site. I built the website myself using Adobe Dreamweaver and it was hosted online for use. In my opinion the project has gone well and I have a created a useful E-Learning product.
