Committed to Accessibility in Learning
Deliver a learning experience that meets the needs of all people, regardless of age or ability.
Crafting Learning That Meets Everyone’s Needs
We believe that every mind matters and access to high-quality learning should be universal.
Our inclusive UX research and product design process means we consider accessibility and engage people with diverse abilities at every stage. It’s more than a rubber stamp. We go beyond compliance and the letter of the law in our commitment to accessibility by nurturing an organization-wide culture of accessibility and inclusion.
Conforming to Accessibility Standards
We constantly strive to ensure that our learning platforms work seamlessly with various assistive technologies to provide a great learning experience to people with diverse needs. We integrate the latest global accessibility standards into our product process and openly report conformance to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level AAA standards and compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, 1973. Our latest accessibility reports are posted on the Accessibility Standards page. Our accessibility plan for 2022-27 is posted on our Multi-year Accessibility Plan page.
