Abstract

This chapter addresses the pedagogical dimensions of online learning for university students with disabling conditions. Research reviews indicate that the technologies of online learning do not preclude the participation of students with disabling conditions. The increasingly high-tech design of online learning poses challenges for some learners. The principles of universal design for learning (UDL) are used to explain that proactive design allows educators to enable learning for diverse students. The chapter provides a practical summary of the pedagogical dimensions of online learning in the context of student diversity.
