Abstract

This research details the methodologies that could be used to better deliver online course content to students with learning disabilities. Research has shown how the design of the course affects the students’ attitudes and performance. This article details the methodology and pedagogical side of the delivery including instructional methods that research has shown to be beneficial to students with learning disabilities. Some of these include digitally delivered instructional audio, various textual interactions between the students, and other assistive methodologies.
This research is a case study of a 21-year-old college student with dyslexia during an online history course which used several different content delivery methods in order to teach the students in the class. This research provides an insight into the impact that these online instructional methods have on the students’ attitudes and learning strategies. The results help explain the behavior of the participants of this study and how they reacted to the online environment in which they were placed.
