The Third International Conference on Hybrid Learning (ICHL 2010) was organized by the School of Continuing and Professional Studies of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Beijing Normal University, Goethe-Institut China, Caritas Francis Hsu College, and Caritas Bianchi College of Careers. ICHL 2010 provided a platform for knowledge exchange on hybrid learning among educators, researchers and computer scientists, who share a common goal to enhance the quality of learning and teaching in this fast-changing knowledge world, with the support of technology innovation. Hybrid learning has been an ongoing trend for a number of years. It is not merely a simple combination of face-to-face and technology-mediated instruction, but also encompasses different learning strategies for teaching and learning. It places emphasis on outcome-based teaching and learning, and provides a diversified learning envir- ment. Hybrid learning is probably the most efficient learning mode in the present age of globalization, when learning has to be borderless and dynamic in order to address the diverse learning needs of students. Students are given more opportunities to - velop into active independent learners, and to practice practical skills for work and study. It was our pleasure to have three keynote speakers for the ICHL 2010. They were Rebecca Launer from Goethe-Institut, Germany, Bebo White from Stanford Univ- sity, and Yan Ji Chang from Tsinghua University, all of whom shared with us their valuable insights in the hybrid learning field.

Human-computer interaction studies the users and their interaction with an interactive software system (ISS). However, these studies are designed for people without any type of disability, causing there to be few existing techniques or tools that focus on the characteristics of a specific user, thus causing accessibility and utility issues for neglected segments of the population. This reference source intends to remedy this lack of research by supporting an ISS focused on people with visual impairment. User-Centered Software Development for the Blind and Visually Impaired: Emerging Research and Opportunities is a collection of innovative research on techniques, applications, and methods for carrying out software projects in which the main users are people with visual impairments. While highlighting topics including mobile technology, assistive technologies, and human-computer interaction, this book is ideally designed for software developers, computer engineers, designers, academics, researchers, professionals, and educators interested in current research on usable and accessible technologies.
