Publication Date: 2002
Paper discusses design and development of TruVision, which is an online learning environment designed to enable students with visual disabilities to develop skills and expertise in elementary and advanced information processing. Such skills have the potential to enable them to seek full-time employment as administrative assistants, help desk personnel, and data entry operators. The program provides the user with a simulated workplace so that the user can learn to complete authentic tasks and work assignments. Users are supported by virtual Information Support Officers, who guide them through the learning process. TruVision is part of the Flexible Learning Toolboxes Project, which is part of the Australian Flexible Learning Framework for the National Vocational Education and Training System. This paper was presented at the ED-MEDIA 2002 World Conference on Educational Multimedia, Hypermedia and Telecommunications.
