Push the boundaries of accessibility in higher education

Education in the digital age should never limit learning opportunities. To help every student reach their full potential, you need to be ready to meet a diverse range of individual needs and help overcome physical and mental barriers. Choose a technology provider that can partner with you to easily deliver a fully accessible learning experience and meet the needs of all learners.

Be an accessibility leader

Today’s learners have a variety of needs that have to be met to provide equitable access to education. We’ve made it easy for you deliver fully accessible experiences for all your learners by automatically captioning videos in different languages for free and providing a built-in accessibility checker for content, quizzing, and discussions. This helps you to not only identify barriers but also work to remove them. We go beyond implementing technology with accessibility in mind—we’re helping build the next generation of accessibility standards.
