How will your interactive learning resource specifically ensure that the needs of all learners can be met?
My peer review is for Food Studies for Beginners by Learning Pod 9. Overall I think that this Interactive Learning Resource (ILR) was very well planned and well written.
This is Pod 2’s Interactive Learning Resource about parallelism:

I connected with this as a learner and agree that instruction is most effective when it is adaptable to different learning styles. Continue reading
