The key objectives of the study are to:
- Identify optimal conditions for presenting text-based information to support the learning of students in HE; evaluate these conditions across student groups: deaf/hearing impaired (DHH); students with dyslexia difficulties and students with English as an additional language;
- Develop a model for supporting conceptual comprehension of complex text based information;
- Establish a platform for developing an agile system that will be responsive to different user needs;
- Use this evidence base to inform the development of guidance to providers of online learning and other producers of complex text based digital information; draw out the implications for access.
