IT Experts Focus Group

Today, the Macedonian team conducted the Focus Group with IT experts.

Eight professionals with various expertise and experiences shared their opinions regarding the creation of Learning Management Systems (LMS) in Higher Education. One of the largest challenges was to choose an adequate LMS which can be constructed and introduced in higher educational institutions in the area of humanities and social sciences.

Near the end of the meeting, the group of experts defined parameters for the future accessibility of Learning Management Systems. More specifically, they suggested creative ways of how to make this system accessible for students with impaired vision, impaired hearing, physical disabilities and specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia.

Their input, as well as the input from the focus groups in the partner countries will be qualitatively analysed and will become an integral part of our first intellectual output – the methodological framework for accessible LMSs.
