Remote learning is a challenge for all: students and disability support alike.
There is a multitude of distractions and interruptions inherent in online learning. A student can be watching a lecture, taking notes, and communicating with their peers all from the same screen. For the support professional, understanding how to identify struggling students and tailor support is more challenging than ever.
We’ll explore the obstacles being faced within our community and discuss solutions to remote note-taking support. We’ll then introduce Sonocent’s new web app, Glean, which has been designed to accommodate remote learning environments.
