With the motto “weiter:denken” (think ahead), the University of Koblenz provides the incentive to question the familiar and the known in order to reach new insights. This is realized in the VISITKO project, which expands the institution in terms of accessibility for students with visual impairments.
Categories: Education and training
The goal of this project is to simplify everyday university life for students with visual impairments while keeping construction measures to a minimum. For this purpose, an OJO-SMART will be extended according to the needs of the students.
The interdisciplinary Career and Study Center (IKaruS) is the central academic institution of the University of Koblenz that accompanies students from the beginning of their studies to their career entry and beyond.
Stiftung Innovation in der Hochschullehre
This foundation’s “Freiraum” call for proposals aims to enable advances in teaching and learning at universities, as well as to continuously strengthen the capacity for renewal in teaching.
OJO-SMART consists of a camera and a portable mini-computer, which uses audio output to assist persons with visual impairment in various everyday applications e.g. text, object or collision detection.
