Because of the presence of the NTID on RIT's campus, faculty are in a unique position to examine how deaf and hard of hearing students react to course delivery through on-line learning. During the 2001-02 academic year, all students with a hearing loss enrolled in on-line learning courses were asked to respond to a 35 item questionnaire that rated to the importance of instructional components for their overall learning. Additional open-ended questions asked students what they did and did not like about the on-line learning experience. In this session, we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the on-line learning format from the perspective of deaf and hard of hearing participants. Two questions will be explored: Does on-line learning “level the playing field” for deaf and hard of hearing learners? Do deaf and hard of hearing students have equal access to instructional material in on-line learning courses?
