Basham, James D.; Lowrey, K. Alisa; deNoyelles, Aimee
Journal of Special Education Technology, v25 n2 p31-44 2010
This study investigated the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework as a basis for a bi-university computer mediated communication (CMC) collaborative project. Participants in the research included 78 students from two special education programs enrolled in teacher education courses. The focus of the investigation was on exploring the outcomes of the UDL-based design that used CMC tools. Results indicated that the UDL framework was important to the overall design, students' participation times varied, and CMC tool use emerged in two separately important ways. Findings also showed improved instructor ratings for project courses as compared to other courses. Information related to the instructional design and implications for further research are discussed.
