BACKGROUND

Stressful for disabled students to attend class on time

Our initial user research finds that it is stressful for students with disabilities to arrive at class on time when the distance between two classrooms is far apart. Also, we find that for disabled students, fear of missing important information is the biggest stress factor for being late. And what's worse is that disabled students may not attend class as they feel like they already missed parts of the class.
