You are invited to participate in a study named “Implementation
and Efficacy of Universal Design in Online University Coursework for Students
Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired."
Purpose of this study:
The main purpose of the study is to investigate how students who
are blind or visually impaired (BVI) perceive
the implementation and efficacy of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in
online university coursework. Another purpose of this study
is to find out if UDL can meet the needs of all learners who are blind or
visually impaired in an online classroom environment. Additionally, the study
hopes to contribute to the literature on UDL.
Eligibility to participate:
Participants must be a screen reader user who is blind or visually impaired and who has previously enrolled in or currently is enrolled in an online university course.
Participant role in the study:
