Accessible Course Materials
Students bring a wide variety of physical, visual, hearing, cognitive, and communication abilities to learning. As we design our course materials or activities, we want to keep our students' characteristics in mind. This section focuses on the tools and resources to help you assess, create or convert your instructional materials to ensure they are accessible to all students.
UDL is a framework that promotes flexibility in the way to present or teach course content, engage students via various activities or strategies, and allow students to express or demonstrate the knowledge or skills they have learned in the class.
