In this century technological and educational needs increase drastically. Out of local language, educators need to teach robotic language and use necessary technologies to design robots like Arduino set. This set let users to know less code/computer language and knowledge about electronics. Users may develop their own robots with this set. It also improves design and implementation skills. However, it is not a suitable design for blinds. Universal design approach suggests educators to design courses in a way to meet the needs of all participants. By this approach, learning environments are helpful and useful for participants with special needs. With the scope of the study we suggest a three steps course design for robotics education; introducing with appropriate materials, using real materials with descriptions and discussing for further designs. In the first step bigger materials with big holes and big bottoms will be used to make sense about devices. In the second step, during the sighted learners are testing we suggest to educator to describe what is happening. The last step will be about imagination for what we should do more. Present study may lead to new insights on how to introduce system to blinds during the learning process.
