Creating Personalized Learning Solutions

Personalized learning is creating new paths for education. Audio, video, tactile objects and other personalized learning solutions allow students with different learning needs to explore educational concepts in new ways. As alternative modes of access proliferate across the web, it will be critical for educators and students to identify the particular learning materials they need, including materials for STEM education.

Benetech Imageshare is an open source platform that simplifies finding alternative modes of access. Educators and students can search by subject, modality, and other key metadata to find the particular learning materials they need. Imageshare will search across multiple educational collections including APH’s Tactile Graphics Image Library, Smithsonian, Wikipedia, Thingiverse, and other online repositories.
