Abstract: Online training and education for adults was forced to reinvent itself throughout the covid-19 pandemic context. Recent studies have shown that nearly half of all learners have experienced problems linked to technological or pedagogical accessibility, even with reliable internet access and sufficient bandwidth (DARES & Réseau CARIF-OREF, 2020). Normative frameworks are gradually being implemented in Europe (WCAG) and Canada (SGQRI-008) to provide technological accessibility for adults’ distance learning. For inclusiveness, Universal Learning Design (ULD) seems like a promising approach (Rogers-Shaw, David & Choi, 2018). However, our ongoing analysis shows limitations from the ULD model, applied to adult distance education.
