Whitepaper - How to Approach Online Learning
STEM education. For everyone.
Our commitment to student accessibility.
ACCESSIBILITY - AN EXTENSION OF OUR CORE BELIEFS
At DigitalEd we've built Möbius using our beliefs, values, and the core pillars of software development.
We embrace belonging, celebrate differences, and we meet learners where they are. We believe this includes all STEM learners, including those with diverse accessibility requirements
and who use assistive technologies in their daily life.
MEET LEARNERS WHERE THEY ARE
HOW OUR TEAM SEES ACCESSIBILITY
WCAG is important for not only those concerned about accessibility but for all those concerned
about general, universal usability. These guidelines serve to challenge the way we approach
development of new features as well as improving existing ones. A universal design experience
works for all, from inception, and standardizes the experiences our users take part in.
To make our platform more accessible, we have adopted WCAG 2.0 AA as our baseline standard.
The guidelines under WCAG serve to guide the way we approach development, and we will always strive to listen to users' needs, educate
ourselves, and make necessary improvements to our platform.
We've filled out the VPAT form for our latest release, which is the standardized form that evaluates
accessibility. We examine each new feature and any changes to existing features against the full set of WCAG guidelines so that our clients and partners have the
latest information on our platform's accessibility. Each WCAG success criterion is evaluated for compliance and linked to the equivalent Section 508 and EN 301 criteria.
