Inclusive design affords equal opportunities to diverse learners by strategically adjusting content to influence how learners perceive the digital environment of a course (Kizilcec, 2017). MOOC courseware allows us to design content experiments that test how the gender, ethnicity, and status (expert vs. peer) of instructors affects outcomes for certain learners. We will discuss our learnings from the two content experiments we conducted exploring how the identity of instructors appearing in course welcome videos affected learners' behavior and outcomes.
