Questions related to Deaf Culture
The Canadian Institute of Mass Communication (CIMCweb.com) is embarking on a pilot project to create language-barrier-free learning environment for deaf students, as a scalable model for Inclusive Education. The prototype system would utilize relevant available technologies, including HamNoSys/SiGML programming and Applied Artificial Intelligence. Contact santosh.shail@CIMCweb.com.
I'm writing a thesis on deaf culture, the deafness in children and their ability to learn the sign language of their own country, and sign language interpretation (in particular I'm focusing on Italian sign language, American sign language and English sign language).

I created a survey with examples that exist on multiple sign language books in order to verify and validate them with deaf sign language users.
Right now we got information about countries partnered with our project, but even with those more information would be welcome, specially International Sign Language.
Here is a link to the survey: https://goo.gl/forms/OZ8HYlSUSXZXDTqp1
To fill the survey you need a google account, thank you.
Here is a link to the last publication of the project:

So many MOOC now available. Are they helpful in deaf education? Some courses have subtitles. Are there any features that can be included in MOOC to make it more deaf friendly?
