The Equity and Excellence in Higher Education’s Universal Course Design (UCD) Web site has been designed for faculty, by faculty, to help you learn about UCD. There are a number of very useful features on this Web site to help you integrate universal design strategies into your courses.
The features include:
Examples of universally designed college course materialsOnline tutorials for using technology in your class (UD powerpoints, podcasts, word documents, etc...)Universally designed instructional and assessment strategiesA introductory video describing what UCD is.UD tools and resourcesA blog for faculty and college staff to discuss how and why to use UD strategies
The site contains a potpouri of useful materails to create courses with University Design, accessible to all students. Besides a book on the subject, there is a 15 minute introductory video, worksheets, and links to ways to implement UCD in curriculum, assessment, and other areas. Although the materials reflect the UMass Boston experience, they are transferrable to other academic settings.
I did not encounter difficulties.

The tutorial section is excellent for teachers who are developing their first online course. teachers need to become familiar with the principles of Universal Design.
Loads quickly. The Breeze tutorials are just the right length - not too difficult but not with good material and examples.

Great material on Universal Design for Learning. Strong examples of how faculty members can incorporate UDL into their courses.
