Abstract: Teachers are challenged to teach increasingly diverse students in their classrooms to high standards. To help teachers reach these students, materials are needed that provide multiple representations, support multiple means of expression and engagement, and have different assessment strategies. The idea of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is to provide materials with this degree of flexibility and scaffolding to meet each students’ learning needs. This paper is about the ideas and strategies of creating/developing hybrid online course to maximize student learning outcomes through a UDL perspective. These free online multimedia tools are easily nested as part of any hybrid/online course.
