About the Course

This course was designed to support you in designing effective and accessible online learning environments specifically using the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in the context of contemporary learning management systems. 

For the purpose of this course, we will provide links for "how to's" for the top 4 LMSs (Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, Schoology). However, the principles we advocate here are practicable in all modern LMSs.

  • Taking the course for grad credit? Complete a final project for feedback
