100 Web Tools for Learning with a Disability

Posted Aug 02 2008 8:11am
For a good and fairly comprehensive listing of assistive technologies to assist a wide spectrum of disabilities, check out

100 Web Tools for Learning with a Disability.

This rich article includes links for both free and paid software titles in the following categories:

* Text to speech

* Alternative formats

* Math help

* Physical disabilities

* Language disabilities

* Visual disabilities

* Hearing impairment

* General disability

* Concept mapping

* Web browsing.

This is one of several articles posted in the library on,

a web site that matches users’ fields of interest with accredited online college programs. The site reports having 1049 programs and 115 colleges in its database.

I didn’t spend a lot of time looking over the colleges and programs on the home page, but the site has user configurable settings to narrow the search. Spend some time there and check it out if you’re interested. If you do, please leave a comment and share your thoughts.

However, even without anything else, just that one article in the library makes it worthwhile. There are a few others listed on the home page, and a few more on the

Library page.

One other article I found in the library worth noting is

When Wikipedia Won’t Cut It: 25 Online Sources for Reliable, Researched Facts.

I believe this article will be of use to any college student with or without a disability, and also whether they take an online class or not.

Finally, another useful feature is that the library page has a subscription option so that you can sign up for the newest articles whenever they are published.
