What is Eye Gaze?

Eye gaze technology offers quick, easy and less tiring way of accessing the computer than traditional methods, such as switches and scanning. By emulating the mouse, it can be used with a much wider range of software than switches, opening up more opportunities for students with physical disabilities to interact and engage.

The new range of low costs eye gaze trackers is encouraging special schools from around the world to start adopting eye gaze technologies to complement their fully inclusive, accessible classrooms and resource kits, alongside their more traditional assistive technologies, such as switches and joysticks.

Eye Gaze technology has also been used for many years in research and marketing as a tool to gain an insight on where someone is looking to evaluate user experience and the impact of marketing campaigns. It now offers us an opportunity to obtain objective and functional feedback and analysis of our student's visual skills and preferences.

This course will provide you with a structured way of using eye gaze to support students with profound disabilities with their learning and communication. It's suitable for both beginners and those with experience of using eye gaze and is ideal for special needs teachers, classroom assistants, therapists and parents.
