dc.description.abstract What does a digital classroom look like when it is ideally designed for the needs of each student? In a society where multimedia is ubiquitous, mainstream technology has increasingly replaced historically niche adaptive technologies. Multimodal accommodations for students who live with disabilities that used to be difficult to obtain, like video captions, audio narration, and screen magnification are now readily accessible in nearly every device we use - and such accommodations are advancing all the time. These changes make pursuing the goals of Universal Design in the digital classroom seem more doable than ever. Universal Design is the philosophy of designing society to accommodate the broadest amount of people to minimize situations that foster disability. In education, this is the Universal Design of Learning. The Universal Design of Learning works under the premise that when educational material is designed for a broader audience, the benefits are felt beyond the students that receive the accommodations. Can any classroom design that serves a network of diverse students really be called "universal", however? How does the pursuit of the universally accommodating digital classroom affect the broader network of the digital classroom as a whole, and if multimodal accommodations do ultimately benefit the entire network of the classroom, how does this work? This paper will discuss the logistics surrounding the rhetoric of accommodation in online teaching through the use of multimodal rhetoric in designing a digital classroom that best accommodates its students. en_US
