Welcome to the Inclusive Learning Design Handbook

The Floe Inclusive Learning Design Handbook is a free Open Educational Resource (OER) designed to assist teachers, content creators, Web developers, and others in creating adaptable and personalizable educational resources that can accommodate a diversity of learning preferences and individual needs. This is a work in progress and we are constantly adding more content to this handbook. The information in this handbook is structured in the following sections:

  • Introduction: Provides an introduction to the handbook and describes who can benefit from using it
  • Perspectives: Contains articles that discuss the main issues related to education and inclusive learning
  • Approaches: Provides best practices, guidelines and resources for creating inclusive content and learning experiences
  • Techniques: Contains practical tools and techniques to produce inclusive content and assess its accessibility
