Course Details

Course Summary

Resource Summary

The move from classroom to online course delivery has been occurring for a number of years and with the influx of e-learning technologies, the role of the academic has changed significantly. As academics, we are now expected to design online units that are effective, accessible, usable and inclusive to assist the learning needs of a very diverse student population.

This collection of resources has been developed to address accessible design, usable design, and personalised learning. It is organised around the principles of Universal Design of Instruction, Universal Design of Learning, and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. The resource provides valuable information, guidelines, tips and templates to assist academics in the design of universal online content and delivery.

There is no fee associated with these resources.

Entry Requirements

There are no specific entry requirements to enrol in this resource and it is open to all CQUniversity Academic staff or other staff members interested in learning about accessible online content design and delivery.
