Abstract:

In this session, you will see an example of a course transformed into a more visually appealing and engaging experience both for the students and the instructor. If you are struggling with your course design, unhappy with difficulties controlling fonts in the D2L environment, or want to improve your course design based on UDL principles, this session will demonstrate several resources to support your needs.

We will showcase and provide full-course design models based on Brightspace Content Templates as well as a low-tech version without HTML templates. The course designs have accessibility and Quality Matters standards built-in and each is fully customizable. Instructors with already developed courses will be able to gather new ideas and have the option to copy select components from the models. Come to this session to learn how to access and use these resources.
