Blackboard Learn+: Universal Design and Accessibility for Online Learning

Blackboard Learn+: Universal Design and Accessibility for Online Learning

A stand-alone course for instructors and content developers that explores what accessibility and universal design mean and how they can be applied to online learning.

This course is meant as a stepping off point for building online courses that are usable and accessible. The content is intended to inspire further exploration and advocacy for designing materials that benefit students and help them achieve their educational goals.

Go through the material presented at your own pace. There is no set order or dependencies. Use the Course Menu links to access the content and resources. The Syllabus gives you the course goals and suggested reading material. The Course Content is organized into four modules:

  • Universal Design
  • Accessibility
  • Assistive Technology
  • Learning Styles

Start off by watching the video Campus Leaders Talk About Accessibility, linked below, to gain a perspective of how executives are thinking about accessibility and what drives them to change. How can you use these ideas to promote accessibility at your institution? Feel free to share your experiences on the Discussion Board.
