The purpose of this heuristic methodology study was to develop a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) heuristic evaluation. The heuristic utilizes online learning design evaluation frameworks, as well as user experience (UX) heuristic evaluation processes to create an instrument that best evaluates online on-demand modules. This study follows the design of the heuristic, with data collected from literature and online instruments. The results found that developing a UDL heuristic evaluation focused on the first two levels of the UDL framework, which included access and build. These two provided criteria that are specific to design choices that do not require an instructor facilitator. Its components are those that use accessible technologies, varied materials and choices, clean and routine navigation, multiple ways to demonstrate content, and feedback mechanisms.
