Sukhwant Lota - Moodle Developer: How Moodle Courses Work

Sukhwant Lota - Moodle Developer: How Moodle Courses Work | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

As it's sometimes quite difficult to explain how Moodle Courses work to teachers, here is a handy poster which explains the difference between Standard courses and Meta courses within Moodle. (Although not technically correct with the way Moodle works with Child/Meta courses) I wanted to keep this as simple as possible.

Universal Design for Learning & Assistive Technology

Universal Design for Learning & Assistive Technology | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

This course runs from March 12 through April 20, 2012. The principles of Universal Design for Learning provide educators with a framework to plan lessons to make instruction accessible to every student. In this course, we will work through six weeks of online activities. All of the activities are designed to further the team goal of experiencing free technology to help teachers plan lessons in a way that makes the content accessible to the widest possible audience. Throughout the course, participants will learn practical methodologies for representing content using multiple modalities, providing the means for students to demonstrate what they know using a variety of tools, and engaging learners using high-interest, authentic practices.

Principles of universal design for learning: What is the value of UDL training on accessible pedagogy?

With the increase in online courses and the associated rise in the number of disabled students enrolling, there are specific expectations for faculty members to prepare courses to be accessible. This study, using feedback from a sample of seven community college faculty members, explored the value of training in universal design for learning (UDL) on the design of accessible online courses, using a pre-experimental, cross-sectional, mixed methods design. Findings from the study indicated a statistically significant increase, pre test to posttest, in overall knowledge of the principles of UDL as well as a statistically significant increase, pretest to posttest, in importance placed on the design of accessible courses. These findings were supported by the embedded qualitative data which included concrete examples of how the use of UDL principles and design strategies was stronger in the posttest results. The outcomes of this study indicated that providing training for faculty members about the principles of universal design for learning (UDL) is important in terms of the effective design of accessible online courses. The results also highlighted the value of UDL training with the necessity for educational institutions to comply with disability related laws and the continued growth in the number of disabled students enrolling in the online courses. As this growth continues, the need to design online courses that are accessible will becomes more critical to the field of instructional design. Findings from this study indicated that this need can be effectively addressed by making UDL training an integral part of professional development for community college (an possibly other) faculty members who design their own courses.

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in Library Instruction

This article introduces Universal Design for Learning (UDL), an emerging paradigm to “design course instruction, materials, and content to benefit people of all learning styles without adaption or retrofitting.” The study explores multiple UDL principles that could be applied to library instruction by providing a lesson plan in general and one focusing on teaching Boolean Logic. The article presents data and analyzes surveys to evaluate the impact these have on teaching effectiveness. The results of the survey suggest that a simple adoption of UDL can help students master search skills effectively.

Accessibility of eLearning - Online Courses - schooX | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

It is part of a teaching professional’s skills to understand the needs of a diverse population of students. This unit introduces the challenges for disabled students who may use computers in different ways when taking part in eLearning or may need alternative teaching methods. It covers the technology and techniques used by disabled students, the adjustments to teaching methods that might be reasonable, design decisions which affect the accessibility of eLearning tools and strategies for evaluation.
