Your AI-Powered UDL Partner
LUDIA was created as a new kind of entry point and scaffold for developing a Universal Design for Learning mindset, intentionally designing to reduce learning barriers, and discovering the power of Artificial Intelligence.
LUDIA does not just give strategies; they provide context specific and culturally relevant options for instructional design that take all three principles of UDL into account. LUDIA gives guidance about barriers that have not been considered and minimizes threats to unlearning that can lead to shifts in mindsets.
