In addition, you will be asked to provide feedback about the WebQuest itself, in the Reviews section of this site.
1. First, you'll advise the Instructional Designer on the top two or three learner characteristics that should be considered when developing the online course. You'll justify your recommendations by citing what you learned from the WebQuest resources you reviewed, that describe the student/learner population.
2. Second, you'll advise the Instructional Designer on the most appropriate types of online learning activities for this student/learner population, and you'll justify your recommendations by referring to your most important learner characteristics as well as information in the WebQuest resources.
In other words, you'll review the WebQuest materials and tell the designer which learner characteristics are absolutely essential to consider in the course design. Then, you'll recommend learning activities for them that take into consideration these essential characteristics.
