Technology remains an important facet that has revolutionized learning in modern society. Most innovations are intended to streamline operations and improve the quality of skills and knowledge delivered to students. Thus, online learning is becoming a reality. Despite these developments, there have been varying opinions concerning the contributions of online learning to the development of students of determination. Even though this method of teaching has been efficient in enhancing the learning experience of typical students, questions still exist when the approach is applied to students of determination. In particular, limited knowledge exists concerning the contributions of the online learning system to the achievement of special children’s unique needs and inclusion experience. This study assessed the opinion of parents and teachers in Dubai, the UAE, concerning the inclusion experience and achievement of learners’ needs through online learning in private elementary schools. Data was collected from a sample of 69 teachers and 25 parents who were directly involved in the learning experience of special children using virtual platforms. Important findings and invaluable recommendations are presented to help streamline this method of teaching, thus improving the learning experience of students of determination.
