One lawsuit every working hour is filed in the US under the American Disabilities Act [ADA] against companies and their web content; that’s eight per day, 40 per week - on pace for more than 2,000 a year. As you can imagine, the bigger you are the bigger the target you become, especially in the education sector. Organisations can struggle to create learning content that is compliant, as the guidelines are hard to follow without technical skills. Brickfield Education Labs fixes that.
Making e-learning content more accessible results in better user experiences for all students. Compliance is difficult to achieve when there are hundreds of different staff members creating content across thousands of courses. Solving this issue now has greater urgency beyond the US, with the new EU Directive on accessibility of websites and mobile apps requiring public sector bodies to make their existing sites and content compliant by 23 September 2020. Time is ticking by for institutions. Failure to comply with the legislation risks both financial and reputational loss.
At Brickfield Education Labs, we have a solution. Our suite of tools finds content that does not meet the regulatory standards by searching through millions of items of content, helps organisations bulk fix the issues found, and future-proofs their system through removing the need for instructors to know the technical details.
