Increase Online Student Retention with Universal Design for Learning
Tobin, Thomas J.
Quarterly Review of Distance Education, v15 n3 p13-24 2014
Adopting Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles in order to create online course content allows higher education faculty members to reach out, not only to learners with disabilities, but also to learners who are increasingly using mobile devices to connect to campus and to each other. This article outlines 5 key strategies for creating and converting online course content to be more accessible to today's Web 2.0 learners. One challenge of creating content according to UDL principles is the large scope of a full-on UDL treatment. This article shares specific time-based milestones to help readers to work through the UDL process in a realistic, step-by-step fashion.
