Accessibility for educational games is a work in progress across the industry. We continually seek solutions to make our products fully accessible, and we strive to adhere to established standards for accessibility and usability on each new project. Some of our older products may not be accessible in all areas and have not been optimized for current accessibility recommendations. Here, we offer the content and approach of this game, so that learners are better able to find alternative content and ways of learning.
The Sorption interactive is intended to explain the specific process of completing a soil adsorption and absorption lab. This module is very versatile in function which can be used as a study tool to expose students to the basics of laboratory soil science or as a teaching aid. While using the module, students utilize a variety of laboratory tools while learning how each one plays a role in the sorption experiment. The module illustrates actual laboratory experiments and procedures, with attention to the planning and organization required to obtain valid results in the lab.
Users explore the concept of adsorption and its importance in the soil sciences with an interface utilizing a mouse or trackpad. The module requires mostly mouse or trackpad clicking and very few instances of dragging.
