I like the graphics and simple layout and as always the graphics are great.

The opening statement "personally relevant, engaging learning opportunities" points to content and not delivery. We are not diversifying or customizing content but the mode of learning and learning delivery. We are also helping individuals learn how to learn and learn how they learn best. 

I like that we generalize the inclusive design principles but I think we should also indicate that we are addressing the needs of students experiencing disabilities. This is our most urgent user group. Can we add a link to the IDRC and the definition of Inclusive Design? 

The story of FLOE is that learners are diverse, not standard or typical, that accessibility is not achieved through a single configuration or design, that learners learn best when learning is personalized. Also that the OER ecosystem is the perfect place to diversify and personalize learning because of the diversity of resources and the opportunity to collectively create variants. 

Rather than the one TV watching example, which is very limited and doesn't encourage imagining the range of possibilities, can we show a diversity of learners with a diversity of configurations? Among these examples should be learners among the full spectrum of disabilities or barriers to learning including "environmental disabilities."

> Joanna, this looks really good. The language seems pretty good. I've noticed a couple of places where punctuation might be adjusted, and other small things, but I can adjust them with the HTML implementation. I'll give it a second look-through, and let you know if I have any more major suggestions.
