The construct of Universal Design (UD) has been used in a number of fields such as engineering and architecture to design and produce products and services that are usable by people with a wide variety of characteristics. The field of UD supports a framework that can also be used to enhance the field of education. A number of constructs have been established that have as their goal the improvement of learning environments to benefit people with a wide range of characteristics. One model is called Universal Design for Instruction (UDI) and another one is Universal Design for Learning (UDL). This article investigates whether the application of the UDL construct will influence the design of technology-enhanced courses. The UDL construct's goal is to create flexible learning environments that can reduce learning barriers and support the needs of a wide range of learners. The authors discuss how UDL learning principles and options are used in technology-enhanced courses. Using UDL principles, technology-enhanced course design is an effective way to create flexible learning environments for learners. This format adds a philosophical structure to technology-enhanced courses that can change the education landscape and create a more dynamic learning experience for all involved.
