English abstract:
The objective of the present study was to investigate the usage of audio-tactile maps in an educational context with visually impaired users, to pinpoint problem areas and to enhance or re-design a suitable system correspondingly. The gained insights led to the design of a modular e-learning tool, based on playful exploration, expression and participation. This is accomplished by harnessing recent advancements in collaborative content generation and geo-localized data available online.
