Accessibility in the virtual learning environment Moodle identification of problems’ class

This article presents the results of an investigation regarding the accessibility of blind students within the virtual learning environment (VLE) Moodle. The study was motivated by the increasing trend of hybrid learning expected for the following years, as well as the growth of enrollment numbers in distance education courses in Brazil. Such numbers generate the concern regarding the access of people with disabilities, by the intention of providing them full enjoyment from the learning experience. Therefore, the Design Science Research (DSR) method was utilized for identifying classes of problems and artifacts through the experience of VLE utilization by this public. The results were compiled from three different sources and resulted in the research’s outlook on this subject for the last ten years. Accordinly, it opens the possibility for advances and generation of knowledge, on order to improve the accessibility in virtual environments such as Moodle.
