The aim of this site will be to create a platform for those who make use of alternative methods of learning and teaching. It is especially aimed at blind and visually impaired users. We all learn in different ways, but there can be no doubt that we live in a world where learning through pictures, diagrams and demonstrations have become the norm. Not only does this situation present a challenge for those who are blind or have low vision, but coupled with the fact that learning materials are inaccessible in general, it is hoped that a platform for inclusive learning could be created to help bridge the gap and to enable those who learn in a non-visual way, to take up the challenge of learning, furthering their skills and attain a better quality of life through using the power of technology and the Internet.

I am a stay-at-home mum of a boy and a girl, interested in technology, business, being creative and I am an aspiring on-line entrepreneur, hoping to help myself and others on a journey of self-discovery, self-employment and self-actualization.
I have found that for me, and I suspect for a lot of others, learning is a lifelong process, providing, amongst other things, a tremendous sense of accomplishment and enhancing self-esteem and creating new opportunities for self-improvement.
Even learning a new daily skill, craft or hobby could provide an indescribable feeling of independence, pride and enjoyment. Moreover, learning can often provide a social connection for those who feel socially or geographically isolated and alone in their pursuit of employment or self-fulfilment.
This site is an effort to establish a platform where blind and visually impaired people would be able to learn in whichever way they find enjoyable and accessible. The Internet and mobile technology has made it possible for us to learn in new ways and to reach each other across vast areas of space and time. For instance, learning could take place in a formal classroom, via a phone conference, an e-mail list, an on-line tutorial, or within a one-on-one setting. It could be learning a new computer language, a new craft, enhancing keyboard skills or even learning a new yoga routine.
If you are a teacher or a company specializing in classes or teaching blind and/or visually impaired people, please feel free to contact me with regard to working together to create new opportunities for us all to learn and improve ourselves. I am hoping to create a valuable resource to bring together teachers and organizations and those wanting to improve their skills, knowledge and know-how, making use of alternative or accessible learning resources.
