Rising rates of students studying online, part-time and from abroad are challenging educators to create more equitable learning opportunities. Meaghan Danby, of Deakin University in Australia, has been awarded a 2023 D2L Excellence Award for the online interview simulation she created in D2L Brightspace. The simulation is an equitable access resource that helps learners practice skills and receive high-quality feedback. It presents students with a virtual interviewee and has them navigate the role of interviewer by selecting questions to ask, and formative feedback is delivered in real-time. The simulation has significantly improved self-guided learning: There has been a more than 40% rise in students accessing D2L resources to help with their interviewing skills.
