Abstract

Instruction of computer information systems (CIS) at Gallaudet University, an institute of higher education dedicated to deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) individuals, has always been challenging. This paper reports on a study to design, develop, implement, and evaluate an instructional delivery system that would blend e-Learning with classroom instruction to enhance DHH college student comprehension of CIS content. A multiple-case study methodology was chosen to collect, analyze, and report on data. Throughout the trial, iterations of concurrent data collection and analysis were performed in parallel with modifications and new development driven by user feedback and preliminary findings. The results, validated through triangulation, member checking, and external audit, have indicated that a technology-enabled blended learning paradigm can indeed level the playing field for the special learner population.
