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.
