During EDLD 5364 this week, I had the opportunity to try out a website called Cast UDL Book Builder. This website allows users to sign up for an account and create simple e-books. Not only can you build and publish these books, the program also allows you to share your finished product with others via email. The builder itself was fairly easy to use. You could simply add images, modify text, and upload sound into your book. However, I thought it would be easier to click directly into the text box to add text instead of having to click an extra link out to the side of the box. This was the only miniscule problem I had while using the program. Using these e-books is a great way to entice readers and aide students with special needs. The website also provides a list of UDL guidelines that any user can refer to as they create books that will fit every learner and every learning style.Check out my book!
