Tuesday, March 7 5:30 PM-7:00 PM Location: Capitol Ballroom D & E
Abstract: With increasing number of online courses available for university students, the accessibility to course materials and activities become more and more critical in online course design and assessment. This paper presents the authors’ experiences to design and increase the accessibility of teacher education online courses. A UTL (Universal Design for Learning) infused ITD technology integration model (content Information, Technology tools, and instructional Design) is formulated and used as the theoretical framework. Procedures of design, implement, and assess the online course accessibility are described. Issues and tips are discussed, and further studies are suggested.
