ACM Workshop on Media Studies and Implementations that help improving Access to Disabled Users

had a paper accepted at the ACM SIGMM International Workshop on Media Studies and Implementations that help improving Access to Disabled Users (MSIADU09) which will be held in Beijing, China.

Details of the paper:

Green, S., Pearson, E., Gkatzidou, S. (2009). Formal Specification of an Adaptable Personal Learning Environment Using Prolog. Paper accepted at the ACM SIGMM International Workshop on Media Studies and Implementations that help improving Access to Disabled Users (MSIADU09), Beijing, China.

Abstract:

The need to ensure that e-learning content is accessible to a wide range of individuals means user profiling and adaptability are increasingly important to all academic institutions. This paper outlines the problems associated with inclusive e-learning and the role of user profiles and adaptation services to support personalisation. It introduces the framework for an Adaptable Personal Learning Environment (APLE) and explores how one component, the Transformation, Augmentation and Substitution service (TAS) can be formally specified using Prolog. This service is closely related to the IMS AccessForAll service and the Prolog specification helps computer scientists, educationalists and developers understand how e-learning content can be adapted to the needs and preferences of a range of users.

The workshop will be held at the ACM Multimedia 2009 Conference in Beijing,and  focuses on how to use technology to achieve an accessible enrvironment for the disabled. Details of the conference can be found here:http://www.salle.url.edu/MSIADU09/main.html
