Abstract

Computer aided learning has become increasingly popular for children. However, children with motion disabilities face a lot of difficulties in computer aided learning due to the poor design quality of the computer aided learning facilities and the devices within them. A case study was carried out in Hong Kong to review the designs of computer aided learning facilities for children with motion disabilities. The findings show that many current facilities are not user-friendly for children with motion disabilities. This paper identifies the deficiencies of current computer aided learning facilities. By considering the degree of inclusiveness, the paper discusses and proposes some design directions of computer aided learning for the children with motion disabilities.
