Before recommending any online learning platform, I would need to have additional details about how the service would be used and I would need a more thorough hands-on evaluation of each company’s product(s).

I am a special education teacher who supervises a technology lab with specialized software, adapted mice, and picture symbol communication aids for students whose significant disabilities make it difficult for them to use the general computer lab. I teach students who cannot climb the stairs to my lab in their classrooms. I also assist teachers and other personnel in my school with their technology needs as time permits.
