Abstract

Web-Based educational platform is now broadly adopted. These platforms are a real opportunities for education of a better quality for a lot of people. Though, people with disabilities are still meeting many barriers to use these systems. In fact, the main barrier is that most accessible Web-Based educational platforms is not available to people with disabilities and doesn’t consider their special needs. In this paper, we present an accessible web-based educational platform for children with special needs from the design step to the implementation. The motive for choosing this idea was the lack of comprehensive educational platforms for children in particular, which bring together children, parents and schools. The proposed platform will support the educational process in schools as the platform contains simplified explanations of what is taught in some school curricula such as numbers, letters and mathematical operations, and also forms a link between the child and his school where it contains worksheets and extracurricular activities that the teaching staff can benefit from. There is also a section for parents that include educational home games and simple books that enhance children's skills and train them on what has been learned. The proposed system was developed using the Unified Modeling Language (UML), ASP.NET , HTML and CSS.
