Abstract

Education is a right for all and thus quality education resources must be provided for students. University as a high education institution yearly receives wide ranges of students with different learning backgrounds and needs, include students with disabilities. Challenges that may arise come from the unawareness of the university in identifying the needs of students with disabilities where now digital technology is readily available to be used. This paper evaluates the optimization of digital technology as learning tools to facilitate students with disabilities and authors will provide suggestions for universities to fully optimize the appropriate digital technology based on previous research. Findings were gathered through several unstructured interviews with disabilities students and review of existing researches on the related subject. There is a gap between readily available digital technology for accessible learning and the enactment that will support best education experience for students with disabilities. Several reasons why the gap occurred are the flaw of web designs and not all lecturers use the available features. Past researches have suggested several necessary designs by users with disabilities. The full use of digital technology in education is a must for all lecturers to facilitate all students by employing policies in university scale.
