Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a flexible course design and delivery framework that supports accessibility, usability and inclusion throughout your course. UDL is not the same as accessibility, but UDL makes accessibility better and easier, and proactively reduces the need for accommodations.

Key UDL principles (displaying materials in different formats, allowing more learner choice and control, varying assessment methods, setting goals and supporting personal connections) minimizes potential barriers and makes learning more accessible for all students. Launch your UDL journey today, and learn to increase equity, access and engagement in your course.
