What is Universal Design for Learning (UDL)?

As we discussed in the previous post, in the pre-pandemic world, most leaders and employees believed that training and growth programs were important to the future of their organizations and careers. 

Now, the need for effective training programs to develop new skills is more important than ever. 

In the past, many organizations “training” programs failed to deliver any real training (practice with feedback). Instead, these programs were limited to PowerPoint slides with recorded voice overs and multiple-choice quizzes. Few people (especially the “participants”) expected any real behavior change, much less new skills or results of their application. 

Many leaders believed that providing information (and maybe a quiz) was enough. Investing in a Learning Management System was often another “necessary evil” for tracking checkboxes on compliance requirements (“Really, can’t we just use Excel?”). 

The world has changed. Most leaders today recognize the importance of investing in more complete training programs that go beyond comprehension to lasting behavior change or skill development. They are less willing to accept invented measures of success (“butts in seats” and “cost per training hour”) and want to see return on investment that leads to a more future-ready organization.

To provide these robust programs and achieve these results, the Learning Management Systems need to provide functionality that goes far beyond “management” (compliance) to facilitate “learning” for real engagement and skills mastery. And it needs to be built with Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to ensure the system is accessible to everyone. Including designers who want to create rich programs without having to go through a huge learning curve.

We built YesLMS to serve organizations who want a REAL Learning Management System to help their teams develop the skills and confidence to navigate an uncertain future.

Our platform is fully cloud-based, flexible, easy to use and created to deliver equal educational opportunities to every learner and help you bridge the gap between face-to-face and remote learning.
