Design and Deliver Accessible Courses
After completing the modules in this course, you will be able to design engaging, effective, and accessible courses using the features of your LMS.
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.
How the Course Works:
- Review the Syllabus
- Watch the video introducing each module
- Review each lesson
- Dive deeper into the content. Review readings and resources, the key is to self-differentiate. Choose what that works best for you and helps you better understand the content and engage with the lesson
- Post to the discussion board, interact with your classmates if you choose to, and make connections
- Taking the course for grad credit? Complete a final project for feedback
- Receive your completion certificate for 45 continuing education hours or 3 graduate-level continuing education credits (as applicable)
