Creating accessibility and active participation for all

Complying with current legislation and recommendations

We work closely with Test Partners to ensure all content conforms to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1

“Plus-one” design

Plus-one” design means that, for every learning interaction an additional option is provided.

Plus-one” design is more than just providing access to learners who have disabilities. All learners are more engaged when they have choices, and control, over how, when, and where they learn. Multi-modal learning supports learners’ preferences and gives them flexibility.

Many people benefit from features like captions, and content that is available on multiple devices, and in varied modalities, for both convenience and personal preference.
For example, a person who wants to watch a video on the train or after the kids are asleep can use captioning and keep the sound off.;
