Reflection on feedback as well as on the Accessibility and Equity

In response to the feedback provided on the course profile for Grade 1 students focusing on the topic of “Needs & Characteristics of Living Things,” it’s evident that the course has been designed to cater to the needs and interests of young learners. However, from the reviewers, I came to know about the further improvements or adjustments that enhance the overall learning experience.


Some highlights of the feedback received from the reviewer:-

  1. The course effectively meets the needs of Grade 1 students which acknowledges their curiosity and eagerness to learn about their environment.
  2. Reviewers also mentioned that the course profile is easily accessible and clearly labeled, ensuring ease of comprehension for all students. Instructions and guidelines are detailed, facilitating effective learning guidance.

3.    A variety of platforms are used within the course shell, such as worksheets on Canvas, LUMI interactive videos, and numerous Learning Management Systems (LMS). True/false and multiple-choice questions are used in interactive videos to promote student involvement. The assessments found in the Canvas worksheets consist of fill-in and multiple-choice questions, ensuring an accurate evaluation.

4. Both formative and summative assessments are integrated to evaluate student understanding comprehensively. Assessments are designed to reflect real-world scenarios and experiences.

5. The course material is tailored to the age group and interests of Grade 1 students, enhancing engagement and cognitive skills. It covers objectives effectively, enabling students to differentiate between living and non-living things and understand basic characteristics of living organisms.

Both in our Week 7 session and in the feedback comments, we received very welcoming and valuable feedback from our colleagues. The feedback indicated several persistent themes, such as the appreciation of the materials’ good organization, ease of use and attention to the student needs.

Thanks for reading my blogs and giving me the useful feedback.

Reflection on Accessibility and Equity:-  The last class’s topic on equity and accessibility was informative. I appreciate Katia’s work for sharing several resources and going into great detail about the topics.


Equity and accessibility are essential in the context of online learning. It is challenging to handle the issues constructively without it. Online learning environments use multiple accessibility components to meet the needs of a wide range of learners. These could include customizable font sizes, color contrasts, screen reader compatibility, alternate text for photos, and keyboard navigation options.

Online learning offers convenience, it also assumes access to technology and reliable internet connections. Instructors should be mindful of this and consider providing resources or support for students who may face barriers due to technology constraints. To address equity and accessibility in online learning, continuous improvement and adaptation are needed. Teachers must ask students about their experiences in the classroom and any obstacles to accessibility they may have encountered. By using this feedback, course design and delivery may be improved continually, maintaining inclusivity and ease of access for all students.
