This paper provides an overview and initial findings of the LExDis project which is exploring the e-learning experiences of disabled learners within a UK university in order to increase understanding of the many complex issues and interactions introduced by disabled learners’ requirements for accessible e-learning, compatible assistive technologies and effective learning support. The LExDis project is relatively unique in that it is using participatory methods to enable the disabled learner’s ‘voice’ to be heard. By giving voice to their experiences it is hoped that authentic, rich and meaningful examples, stories and illustrations can be created that help to inform the practices of lecturers and support staff.
