the following research project.
You are invited to participate in a research study conducted by
Robert L. Morgan, Ph.D., and Sachin D. Pavithran, MS, in the
Department of Special Education and Rehabilitation at Utah State
University. The purpose of this research is to identify the barriers
that blind and low vision college and university students face when
accessing online education courses. Inaccessibility to online
education is a problem for blind and low vision college and
university students. Your first-hand experience accessing online
education is valuable to understanding barriers and seeking solutions
to those barriers. The knowledge and perspective you share can
positively impact the accessibility of online education courses for
blind and low vision college and university students.

following criteria: (a) be blind or have low vision; (b) be currently
enrolled in a two-year college or four-year university; (c) have ever
been enrolled in an online course at a college or university: (d)
have used any assistive technology devices to access the computer;
(e) and be 18 years of age or older.
Your participation will involve taking part in a three-round survey
that will gather your thoughts about the accessibility of online
education courses. In the first round you will be asked to answer
open-ended questions. The second and third rounds will have
multiple-choice questions. This study will be conducted over a period
of two months. You will have 10 days to complete and return each of
the surveys. You will have control over the place and time that you
complete the three surveys.
Your participation in this research is completely voluntary and
research records will be kept confidential.
For your participation in this research study, you will be entered
into a drawing for one of three $100 prepaid Visa cards. Your email
