Inclusive e-Learning is about using technology to help those with disadvantages find access and equity to educational opportunity.
The Australian Flexible Learning Framework between 2005 and 2007 funded projects targeting students with disability, youth and mature age students. Follow the links above and below for ideas and resources for your future projects and activities.
Ideas need not be limited to these groups, and many projects have had students with a mix of disadvantage, such as indigenous students with disabilities, or young students with disabilities.
Mature age students will often take to online learning when it is introduced in a graduated and appropriate way.
On this page there are 3 examples of projects detailing successes with mature age learners aged 46 and over.

This page links to resources and case studies with young people in VET, predominantly aged 15 – 19.
Many young people have a strong facility for technology, although many of the projects found that by giving technology to students, it doesn’t mean they are going to use it. Check out what works on the youth page and visit the online forum for further ideas and resources.
