Universal Design for Distance Education: A Guide for Online Course Development was developed to introduce novice and seasoned professionals who wish to embark on distance education course and program design to a framework known as universal design for learning. One of the main goals of this book is to highlight the model we developed for designing an online course and provide a roadmap for professionals seeking to design individual courses or who wish to build distance education programs.
Each chapter focuses on distance education, and how universal design can be applied to a specific aspect of the design and delivery of distance education courses and programs. Universal Design for Distance Education: A Guide for Online Course Development will help audiences improve the design and delivery of distance education coursework. We hope that this book will serve as a "how-to" for building effective distance education courses and programs.
