I think this can help teachers think of ways to apply the UDL concept in the real classroom. It gave me some ideas for my own classes that I would like to implement.

Technical Remarks:

The navigation was a little confusing. It could use more direction in how to view the information, like a next button.

This approach not only addresses the needs of different learning styles but also takes into account that students learn through audio and video equally with written communication.

Technical Remarks:

The training materials seem to be selected across a broad spectrum that will provide minimal challenge to students who are internet saavy. However, students who have not used these mediums may struggle with completing the case study and will need additional coaching from the instructor.
