As pedagogy evolves in the 21ST Century, the use of technology has grown into a major consideration in providing students with enriched content. No longer are the days of an instructor standing up in front of a classroom expounding upon universal truths. To further meet the needs and goals for reaching students, the use of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) becomes an increasingly important consideration. Universal Design for Learning is a means to provide materials with this degree of flexibility and scaffolding the meet each students’ learning needs. This paper is about digital tools and strategies that can be used in the creation/development of online/hybrid courses to maximize student learning outcomes through a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) perspective.
