CourseArc's intuitive approach to course development makes creating engaging and interactive online courses simple, and accessibility is never an afterthought. The recently released WCAG 2.1 requirements spell out how to ensure content is accessible for all learners. We are pleased to share that after internal and third-party review, we are in full compliance with the new A and AA criteria.
The growing presence of technology in the classroom provides education leaders and teachers opportunities to customize learning content from the district level to the student level. A well-developed education technology product also allows a teacher to play to his or her own strengths, as well as the students', by combining traditional teaching methods with technology for blended learning.
Classrooms of all types, traditional and virtual, K-12, higher ed, and professional, use technology every day to prepare students through online learning. When used strategically and creatively, educational technology can provide meaningful opportunities for students. But instructors and administrators must make sure the digital learning is accessible to all students, including those with disabilities.
Use CourseArc to easily fill the gaps in your online curriculum while reducing your need for expensive, vendor-created content.
