Disability in Higher Education
1. What was your experience with creating a Google Classroom lesson?
My experience with creating a Google Classroom lesson was very positive and relevant to my goals of becoming an instructional designer and curriculum developer. I found the opportunity to construct both the content and the way said content was delivered to be a very beneficial and valuable experience.
2. What are advantages/disadvantages of web-based learning and collaboration?
The advantage of web-based learning and platforms are that student all over the world are able to access and be a part of the learning experience. Moreover, students with disabilities that would not be able to access the course in person are able to access it in a web-based learning experience. Web-based learning also provides the instructor to make the material even more concise, thus enriching the information and learning experience for the students.
3. What strategies would you apply to increase teaching or social presence in online learning?
I would propose that policymakers look at this as an opportunity to provide all citizens with access to quality education. By constructing concise, coherent, and carefully constructed online courses, much more individuals have access to education. This is because some people have jobs and cannot attend full-time education, or they have children, or they have a disability. This platform would also allow athletes to get educated while competing internationally. Online education spaces also require less time from the teacher so they can focus more of their time on conducting research. Furthermore, because this requires less time for the teacher after the course is made, the course can be offered to students at a reduced price and thus be accessible to people that previously could not afford to pursue their education.
