Abstract

Research says online education increases opportunities forstudents with disabilities(Burgstahler, 2002; Opitz, Savenye, & Rowland, 2003; Schmetzke, 2001). In reality, however, disabled people have lower enrollment and educational attainment than expected (Sandhu el at, 2001; Moisey, 2004). These findings raise the question of whether or not technology helps increase disabled students’ access to learning opportunities and improves their learning outcome. This study will measure the accessibility and usability levels of an online learning Website, provided by Thailand Cyber University, Thailand’s largest online institution. Based on a sequential mixed-methods research design, the results from this study will present recommendations for improving future practice.
