About Universal Design for Learning

About the UDL Program

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a set of principles for curriculum development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn. UDL provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that work for everyone - not a single, one-size-fits-all solution - but rather flexible approaches that can be customized and adjusted for individual needs. The UDL Program supports faculty adoption of best practices in designing accessible, inclusive courses.

Canvas Tools to Support Universal Design for Learning

Tools for your Students

Learners differ in the ways that they perceive and comprehend information that is presented to them. There is not one means of representation that will be optimal for all learners; providing multiple options for representation of your content is essential.

New tools in Canvas automatically provide alternate formats of your materials to your students. From your uploaded Word, PowerPoint, or PDF documents your students can now choose to access formats optimized for their learning style and devices; including html, ePub, electronic braille, and mp3 audio.
