Students with disabilities have limited access to HE (Higher Education) in India and Bangladesh. This project aims to tackle this issue by making accessible higher education OERs (Open Education Resources) and MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), and personalisation using AI (Artificial Intelligence), that will enable better provision of open distance learning for those that experience technological, educational and architectural barriers. DIVERSASIA will build capacity of two HEIs (Higher Education Institutions) in India and two HEIs in Bangladesh to integrate these students that have disabilities, using know-how and an inclusive education toolkit developed by experienced inclusive education experts from the United Kingdom, Bulgaria, Belgium, Latvia, Turkey and Serbia. It is hoped that the toolkit will be rolled out in institutions across Asia giving all students with disabilities access to the higher education sector.
