Abstract

This study investigates the use of a touch-screen e-learning application that has audio-support to teach individuals with learning impairments. By undertaking a limited evaluation, the study found the learners (n=3) improved their vocabulary and were more able to make associations between words. The study demonstrated that along with a traditional linear navigation system, audio support can increase the satisfaction of using e-learning systems to individuals with social impairments, as they feel more in control and able to understand how to use and navigate such systems.
