Dr. Sam Slike, a professor at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania will discuss his use of Wimba to provide college courses to deaf and hard of hearing students.
His innovative courses use a sign language interpreter broadcast through a web cam (and simultaneously broadcast via a Sorenson videophone); closed captioning of spoken lecture material via Caption Colorado; PowerPoint slides; text chat; and spoken lecture.
His presentation will provide an overview of the deaf/hh population; general challenges encountered in providing equal access of information for this group of individuals; and creating an online course for deaf/hh and hearing students using Wimba as the delivery tool.
