Web designers have a new opportunity to exercise their talents for a good cause. Packt, a publisher of educational materials, recently announced the release of a book that will help teachers develop interactive courses and therapies that cater to children with special education needs. The book allows users to create rich online content using different techniques and open source tools for children who are between 5 and 10 years old.

Silvina P. Hillar, a licensed speech therapist, wrote the book, which is a guide to help readers pick up necessary skills, tips and tricks for creating practical exercises. The book is for users of Moodle, which is a free web application that educators can use to create online learning sites.

Moodle 1.9 for Teaching Special Education Children can teach readers how to create fun, inspiring, interactive and informative learning activities. They will be able to use netbooks, gamepads, touch screens, microphones and webcams to assist children who need extra help.

The book shows teachers how drawings, music, sounds, videos, photographs and text can be used to stimulate the attention and concentration of children with special needs. Instruction on how to create exercises that enable parents to interact with their children will be provided as well.

Learning software for disabled children is created in collaboration with educators, online media specialists, web and graphic designers.
