Nigel Coutts: The Future of Education

Nigel Coutts: The Future of Education | Educational | Scoop.it

I want to invite all of my online students as well as my online teaching colleagues to this amazing MOOC on Accessibility and Universal Design for Learning.


I completed this course last year and enjoyed it so much I'm signing on again. What I learned in this course has helped me redesign my classes.  This is a rich and nuanced learning opportunity. Don't Miss it!


I've joined the Universities discussion group and hope you will do the same.  I look forward to learning with you all. ~ Dennis
