Portland State University, in collaboration with individuals who are blind, community partners, and leaders in the field of visual impairment, propose a 5-year project to design and develop an evidence-based Unified English Braille (UEB) eLearning platform to serve a target population of adult braille users, parents of children who are visually impaired, and professionals (trained and pre-service) who work with individuals who are blind and visually impaired.

The objectives of the UEB-PREP Project are to: 1) explore and evaluate the braille learning needs of the community through high quality surveys and focus groups; 2) develop an evidenced based braille eLearning desktop and mobile platform that will incorporate a) eLearning experiences designed to be interactive, b) educational gaming designed to be engaging, and c) social networking meant to be connective and motivating; and 3) evaluate the UEB PREP learning platform and its impact on learner performance and on the community of braille learners.
