Ten Steps Toward Universal Design of Online Courses

Ten Steps Toward Universal Design of Online Courses | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

Implementing the principles of universal design in online learning means anticipating the diversity of students that may enroll in your course and planning accordingly. These ten key elements will greatly enhance the accessibility and usability of your course for students with and without disabilities.

 

Step 1: Develop content first, then design.
Step 2: Provide simple, consistent navigation.
Step 3: Include an accommodation statement.
Step 4: Choose CMS tools carefully.
Step 5: Model and teach good discussion board etiquette.
Step 6: Use color with care.
Step 7: Provide accessible document formats.
Step 8: Choose fonts carefully.
Step 9: Convert PowerPoint™ to accessible HTML.
Step 10: If it's auditory make it visual; if it is visual make it auditory.

Reaching Students With Special Needs Through E-Learning

Students with special learning needs often benefit from different and more personalized ways of mastering classroom material. More virtual education opportunities are now available to help meet the academic needs of children with cognitive or physical disabilities, those learning English, gifted and talented students, and those at risk of academic failure. Educators are trying to balance the potential of virtual learning with the need for face-to-face instruction for these groups of students. They are finding that assistive technologies, social-networking tools, and multimedia curricula are helping to build e-learning programs for students from special populations that can help improve academic achievement.

Iversity Collaboration Network for Academia organize courses, research groups and conferences | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

Organize courses, research groups and conferences – for free. The university has c. hanged little since the days of Gutenberg. Students, however, have! The Internet has become an integral part of our lives. Today, we share ideas online. We socialise online. We learn online. Everyday, everywhere – except in the classroom. There, the laws of Gutenberg's Galaxy still prevail. Our universities are still working with "blackboards". It is time for a digital revolution on campus.
