e-Learning Accessibility & Usability

I am intrigued by the intersection of usability and accessibility in the many delivery options offered by the online learning environment. Many terms define and describe the online delivery environments, and as these options expand the audiences and learners also grow more diverse. The downside to the exponential growth of e-Learning is that the more e-Learning expands around the world, the more disparate the usability and accessibility becomes, leading to more incongruent learner experiences. I mean, how many of us have been to websites that just don’t work well? How many times have we just given up when trying to locate information because it wasn’t clear where to navigate or just took too long to find? Even worse, how many of us have taken online training that frustrated us with poor or inconsistent navigation, or led us to a dead end where we couldn’t complete the course? Frustrating, right?
