Universal Design for Learning, Accessible Content & Bb Ally
Best Practices, workflows, and use cases
One in four students take some of their courses online, and two-thirds do so at a public institution (Allen, Seaman, Pouline, & Straut, 2016). In early November, UMBC celebrates National Distance Learning Week (NDLW) with a series of lunchtime conversations.
The principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) promote the approach that everyone -- with and without disabilities -- can benefit from accessible course materials. Learn about the key foundational concepts of UDL and what tools are available at UMBC to make your course materials more accessible to students. Review key barriers that hinder the accessibility of content and discover Ally, a new tool to help improve the accessibility of your Blackboard course content.
