Prateek Agarwal, one of our coolest members, has written a short blog post about his channel on Inclusive Planet. He is a software engineering student and is also part of a music band! His channel, Computer Science, is one of the most popular channels on Inclusive Planet, and is growing everyday!

He recently started a series call Tech It Easy, which has become very popular among the members!

Here’s a brief introduction that he has written for his channel!

Computer, is what made it possible to read this message…
Computer, is what enabled you to do whole lot of different things…
How would it be to look inside of this small but exciting device? Or, how is it to interact with it,  program with it, and doing whole lot of amazing stuff?

The boom in information technology has opened flap of opportunities, and that made a number of students to hop into the IT field. While it’s possible now for a visually impaired person to easily do the programming, computing and stuffs, the number of VI students in IT field are  increasing by.

Like any other subject of the world, it’s hard indeed for a visually impaired person to stride with their sighted counterparts due to
inaccessibility of proper reading material. Then, hours to scan, convert, and edit the book, which makes it more sluggish.
How would you feel, if the book that you had to scan has already been scanned by one of your friends?
Indeed, it would have take hours and great amount of efforts if you have done it, which all saved. Won’t you appreciate to access some readymade class notes of your subject, which your friend has created for himself?
Indeed you would, and the time you’d save can be utilized with more learning, more fun, and more sharings.
If this sounds like a dream, then the good news is, that the dream has come true. I have made a channel on inclusive planet, where you can get and share materials on computer science.

From the introduction to computer to calculas, discrete mathematics, artificial intelegence, computations, programming, algorithms, or whatever else about computer. Getting and sharing the materials is now possible!
You can get those amazing materials, and in fact, share your collection of class notes, Ebooks, presentations, lectures, code snippets, or whatever else.
Further, you can post your doubts about computer, if you ever find any trouble.
Sounds like a cool thing. Right?
Great, then, those who are studying IT, working in IT field, or interested to learn about these stuffs might want to join the channel
computer science”.
A place where you get a chance to explore your dearest, computer!
Just log in to Inclusive Planet, find the computer science channel in the all channels link, and subscribe for it.
It’ll be pleasure to have you guys on the channel computer science, as the sharing has just  started.
Do subscribe and share your materials.
See you there!

Today we begin our series of posts featuring our young members who are a part of the Accessible Class Notes Project.

The Weird Writer

Robert Kingett recently joined Inclusive Planet and is probably one of the coolest people I have come across so far! Both his channels, Weird Writings and Shakespeare Studies, can only be described as awesome! He is a witty and gifted writer and we are glad that he is a part of Inclusive Planet.

Born with CP, and a retinal detachment, he has had to overcome many challenges and obstacles. Below you can hear his interview where he talks about his experiences. A truly touching interview. His story is an inspiration for everyone.

Accessible Class Notes Project

How can you be a part of this?
Start subscribing and sharing your study material on the existing class notes channels. Also feel free to open your own channel which is relevant for you and your friends.

Accessible Class Notes Project

“Insufficient hands-on materials and resources have placed artificial barriers on blind youth who want to learn.”

“I am so frustrated by having to wait for months to get my study material. Half my exam tension is not whether I would complete the syllabus, but whether I will get the study material on time!”

These are common statements made by blind students across the world. In fact blind students, parents and organisations working with the blind put in a lot of effort just to arrange for study material. A good education is a fundamental foundation to life in today’s society. But for the estimated 10 million blind and partially sighted children in the world, making the most of their education can be a real struggle due to a lack of adequate study materials.

But things are now set to change; the dream of studying last minute will soon be reality for blind students worldwide! They might have an opportunity to get all the notes for the next academic year in their hands right now.

You must be wondering how…Here’s how…

Eight blind students SurendraAbdulDavidMoizPrateekAustinRobert and Tomi, from different parts of the world have kick started the Accessible Class Notes Project. Through the Accessible Class Notes Project , Inclusive Planet has created a collaborative environment that allows students to share their lecture notes, exam information, reports, articles, essays or any other helpful material.

If every blind student shares his or her existing collection of study material we can create access to a large pool of material for students who would just be entering those courses. For example, Moiz has shared his final year notes from law school and going forward any law student in India will have access to his notes right at the beginning of the year. Similarly David has started sharing his Braille music notes, so anyone learning music across the world will have something to start with.

In the coming weeks, we hope to see many more students, teachers, schools, and parents join us in our quest to break barriers to accessing relevant study material for blind students across the world.

How can you be a part of this?
Start subscribing and sharing your study material on the existing class notes channels. Also feel free to open your own channel which is relevant for you and your friends.

Let’s come together, and make lack of study material a thing of the past!

Let’s create a planet without barriers!
