The Office of Distance Education and eLearning is dedicated to creating a learning experience that is beneficial for everyone, including those who have learning disabilities. One way we ensure our online courses are accessible for all is through using Universal Design for Learning (UDL). In order for UDL to be effective, it requires purposeful consideration and strategy in all areas of course planning and design. The end result will be online learning that allows students to access, interact, and learn in a variety of ways, addressing the learning styles and learning needs of a diverse student population.
