Great lesson for department administrators to utilize. Took a different angle and used NETS specifically for administrators.

Technical Remarks:

Could add an interactive video that shows an administrator explaining the petition in addition to training slides

Time spent reviewing site: 15 Minutes

Very informative and full of details! Great job explaining in detail what administrators have to do to complete the process. By providing examples and scenarios to the administrators, you definitely help them out while working through the application process. Not only will it make their lives easier, but yours as well! Tutorials and training slides are also a great idea to help the administrators learn how to use the INSzoom database. I’ve learned from personal experience, that a FAQ (frequently asked questions) link is very helpful. By providing this link you are giving your administrators a quick reference area they can visit on their own, instead of asking you the questions you are constantly asked. I think you did a good job meeting instructional strategies by providing discussions, tutorials, and helpful links. I also think you did a good job meeting several UDL principles. Overall I think you did a great job, included lots of helpful details, and it’s very informative!
