Accessibility

CourseArc’s founding story centers on creating better lifelong learning opportunities for all and removing barriers so everyone can learn. We saw firsthand the limitations that many products on the market had—especially when it came to accessibility—and worked to build a course authoring tool that would address that. That drive to create accessible online course content has remained at the forefront of everything we do.

Accessible design begins by weaving best practices throughout the design process to ensure the best user experience for people with visible and invisible disabilities. When design is accessible, it provides a better learning experience for everyone, not just some.

New best practices continue to be developed alongside new technologies to ensure that accessibility isn’t an afterthought. Designing online content with accessibility in mind is our focus and accessibility will continue to be woven into the process at all stages of development. We support our customers with services like accessibility reviews and online courses to help build a foundation of compliance and quality within your team.

We are excited to have this tool that allows us to ensure accessibility for all students. Additionally, CourseArc enables us to have greater ability to collaborate with VLLA partners to develop content that can be shared among its members.  We have been able to start three collaborative course design projects with other VLLA member schools since adopting the new platform.
