Accessibility Policy

Last Updated: July 24, 2023

At EducateWorkforce, our mission is to maintain and promote equal access to high-quality education for everyone without regard to race, gender, national origin, religion, age, sexual orientation, or disability. Accordingly, we are committed to ensuring that and its affiliated subsites are accessible to individuals with disabilities as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and that our platform permits content providers to develop and post accessible content. To meet this goal, we are committed to the following:
  • We aim to conform and its affiliated subsites with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines ("WCAG") 2.1 AA as published by the World Wide Web Consortium, and provide course authoring tools that permit content providers to post course content that complies with WCAG 2.1 AA. We verify conformance through a combination of manual code inspection, automated testing using industry-recognized tools, and compatibility testing using the most widely used accessibility support tools.
  • We require that all course videos include transcripts and timed closed captioning for all audio and video content. We work to ensure that all content providers comply with their independent obligations under applicable accessibility laws to make sure that course content posted on will meet a wide variety of requirements of learners with disabilities. To assist content providers in their efforts, we distribute the platform's Accessibility Best Practices Guidance for Content Providers documentation.
  • We use content authoring tools such as Articulate Storyline 360 which supports WCAG 2.1 Level AA, including screen readers, keyboard navigation, visible focus indicators, and more. Storyline 360 accessibility guidelines provides additional guidance on how to support Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and Section 508 accessibility.
  • We prioritize accessibility bug fixes to ensure they are remedied with the same level of priority as any other equivalent loss of function for individuals without disabilities.
  • We welcome accessibility-related feedback, including requests for accommodation, through the inbox, which is managed by a knowledgeable EducateWorkforce support team.

Many of the Cookies placed through our Site are session Cookies, while others are persistent Cookies, and some are “first-party” Cookies, while others are “third-party” Cookies.

  • First-party Cookies are those set by a site that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g., Cookies placed by or other Subsites affiliated with EducateWorkforce).
  • Third-party Cookies are Cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the site being visited by the user. For example, when a user visits a site and a cookie set on that site by a third-party fires, it transfers information to the user's web browser, where it might be stored or sent back with the next request to the same server. Cookies that are sent through these third-party components are called third-party cookies and are mainly used for advertising and tracking across the web.
  • Persistent Cookies are Cookies that remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the site that created that particular cookie.
  • Session Cookies are Cookies that allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session Cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session Cookies are deleted.
  • Google Analytics Cookies. Our Site uses Google Analytics Cookies, which monitor traffic levels, search queries and visits to our Site. These Cookies enable Google to determine whether you are a return visitor to the Site and to track the pages that you visit during your session. For more information about Google Analytics Cookies, please see Google's privacy policy. Google has developed the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on for the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, dc.js). If you want to opt out of Google Analytics, you can download and install Google’s add-on for your web browser.
  • Facebook Advertisements. We use Facebook to market our services, track conversion events, and find audiences for our courses, programs, and products. You can control whether you see ads based on your activity off of Facebook, through “Data About Your Activity From Partners” in your Facebook Ad Preferences. For more information, see Facebook’s help page.
