What the World Wants to know about Zika Virus?
Zika virus disease is caused by a virus transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes. People with Zika virus disease usually have symptoms that can include mild fever, skin rashes, conjunctivitis, muscle and joint pain, malaise or headache. Symptoms of Zika Virus The incubation period (the time from exposure to symptoms) of Zika virus disease is not clear, but is likely to be a few days. The symptoms are similar to other arbovirus infections such as dengue, and include fever, skin rashes, conjunctivitis, muscle and joint pain, malaise, and headache. These symptoms are usually mild and last for 2-7 days. Why Zika virus has been declared an international public health emergency? The birth defects in the new born, by the mothers infected by this virus, are the major cause of concern. The questions striking many of us can be better answered by our e-learning visuals and 3D animation for better education. Treatment Zika virus disease is usually relatively mild and requires no specific treatment. People sick with Zika virus should get plenty of rest, drink enough fluids, and treat pain and fever with common medicines. If symptoms worsen, they should seek medical care and advice. There is currently no vaccine available. How we can help in awareness E-learning and 3D medical animation can illustrate medical processes that can’t be paralleled by the traditional methods of illustrations, media or content. Scientific and medical research at its initial stage is most challenging to portray the accurate message due to its limited references and many concepts are difficult to be […]
E-Learning Content Accessibility
Many strides have been made in the last 5 years pertaining to the education of students with disabilities and e-learning content accessibility. For students who need assistance with reading, writing and those with cognitive impairment issues, e learning has been an invaluable aid in and outside the classroom for children with learning challenges. Even with the much advancement, many of these solutions have been developed for a student who is able to communicate verbally on some level. What about the student who does not communicate through vocalization? Is there anyway to measure what is gained and whether or not learning comprehension is really taking place? This has been a perplexing issue that has spurned many an educator to write a white paper about. Strides With Technology And The Non-Verbal Student Few are the issues in the classroom more demanding than helping the non-verbal child to be able to participate in the learning process and to be able to ensure that learning transfer is taking place. Oftentimes, non-verbal children come with emotional responses to stress, coupled with an inability to verbalize what the stress are. Students who are unable to articulate verbally are now able to use certain technology tools to help them communicate and be able to interact in the learning environment. These fascinating developments are a great relief to their educators and are excellent confidence builders for the student. For these students, the education space needs a redefining of the term, “literacy.” What was the norm before has to […]
E-Learning Contents for People with Disabilities: a Standardized Design Approach
There are simple tasks that we perform every day without even thinking about it. Take writing as an example. For most of us, the building blocks to writing started in Pre-School or by a parent handing us a crayon and asking us to trace letters. We learned how to properly hold a writing instrument and we struggled until we could master control over our developing skill. For those with dysgraphia or dyslexia, keeping up with learning and written expression can be a great challenge. With the study of e-learning contents for people with disabilities, technology is being put to use to help children and adults who suffer from these learning disabilities to be able to write and even make learning to write fun for them while they are doing it. When The Pen Feels Like A Sword For a person with a learning disability like dysgraphia, or an inability to write coherently, being asked to pick up a pen or pencil and write words on a page can be an anxiety-producing experience. Imagine struggling to make arches and lines in all the right places in your mind while watching it all fall apart into illegible scribbles on a page. For many with this issue, the only recourse for them is to stop writing altogether. Sadly, there are many who are not able to write at all due to some form of dysgraphia. Thankfully, with such robust integration of technology into our every day lives, apps and software are now available […]
