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.

Technical Remarks:

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.

Technical Remarks:

Loads quickly. The Breeze tutorials are just the right length - not too difficult but not with good material and examples.
