Some students with learning disabilities prefer distance learning courses. Information is easily repeated and online discussion boards allow students to assist one another.
Many students are unsure or unaware that they may have a learning disability. Staff at Allan Hancock College have created an online assessment survey tool to assist students who may be learning disabled. Students can take this survey online and receive results by email. This survey has demonstrated a very significant predictive value and staff at the college have used it to help identify students who may qualify for services.
