The purpose of this article is to provide the instructor and learner perspectives of an online learning technologies course that used Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles to support the teaching of UDL. Course design was based on current standards and literature related to online course design including ADDIE, Quality Matters Standards, and Universal Design for Learning (UDL). The qualitative study was conducted during Spring 2018 at the conclusion of an online course titled, Universal Learning for Online Course Design at a Southwestern University in the US. The instructor provided a design narrative and four graduate students who participated in the course provided learner narratives that were reviewed and analyzed by two external researchers. The findings from this study support continued improvement of course design for the next iteration of the UDL Course, as well as providing ideas for other educators interested in implementing UDL concepts in their courses.
