Learning occurs in a variety of modalities. The foundation of universal design is structured around providing multiple means of engagement through learning choices, offering alternatives for auditory and visual information, and varied response and navigation methods. Each educational experience adds additional layers and depth to the masterpiece of each learner, with the goal of engaging learners who are:
Each learner approaches education with a broad spectrum of touch, sight, hearing, and speech, as well as varying cognitive and motor skills. Each learner has a preferred method of engagement or learning styles, including visual learners, auditory learners, kinesthetic learners, and reading/writing learners.
At Jenzabar, we believe everyone should have the right to receive a higher education. As part of that commitment, we are making efforts to make sure that Jenzabar students and consumers have an accessible user experience including persons with disabilities. In doing so, Jenzabar reviews all applicable accessibility regulations including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, and established frameworks for inclusive learning including the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) guidelines.
Our target accessibility standard is the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level A and Level AA. These established standards are used to determine compliance with laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act. We have dedicated resources to our digital accessibility compliance effort, which includes coordination, as well as designing, developing, and testing Jenzabar websites, instructional materials, and other digital content and services for conformance to WCAG 2.0 standards. We may also from time to time collaborate with advocacy and academic groups, industry partners, and vendors to identify areas that need improvement.
