Universal Design for learning and instruction – Designing feedback
This study aims to take a closer look at universal design for learning and instruction. One way to approach this is to look at different learning environments (e.g.: itslearning, Fronter, Moodle, iLearn) and benchmark/map different ways of giving feedback in these learning environments. In addition, one can conduct qualitative research with the end-users in order to see how these different ways of receiving feedback via these e-learning platforms are experienced by them. What makes the system a good one? What does not work, and why?
The thesis can be both theoretical by analyzing theoretically the learning environments, or practical, by building a prototype of own websites, depending on your own interests. The language can be English or Norwegian, at your choice. For conducting this thesis, one should have interest in learning/pedagogics and universal design.
