Accessibility: Making It a Priority, Not an Afterthought
Today almost 26% of adults in the United States live with some sort of disability. That is why, more than ever before, it has become critical to develop accessible learning solutions.
Universal design principles and accessibility standards like the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) make it possible to reduce barriers and make content available to a diverse range of learners. These learners can include people with physical disabilities like those who are blind or deaf and those with cognitive impairments like ADHD, Autism, and Dyslexia.

There are many decisions learning leaders must make. One of the tougher decisions is determining when to acquire a pre-built learning solution or invest in developing a custom solution.
There are a number of considerations in a choice like this, but one of the biggest factors is always budget. In general, you will spend more time and money on a custom approach, and in some cases, the value is worth the increased investment.

Level Set and Level Up: A Learner-Centric Approach to Training in a Virtual Environment
I recently presented "Level Set and Level Up: A Learner-Centric Approach to Training in a Virtual Environment," with Constellation Brands' Director of Learning & Development Maggie Romanovich at the Training Industry Conference & Expo. In our session, we provided practical techniques for allowing learners to customize their own training experience to increase their personal investment in their learning journey. To do this, we examined a case study of training Constellation Brands' sales audience using a learner-centric, multifaceted approach.
Government Agencies use eLearning for Targeted Public Outreach
Whether it is protecting the environment, regulating an industry, distributing benefits or preventing fraud, government agencies need cooperation and compliance from an educated public to be effective. Accomplishing this education is often challenging due to the schedules and geographic location of the people the agency is trying to reach.
Integrating a Specialized eLearning Course and LMS
Organizations frequently need to train and certify external target audiences in a specific subject matter area. They need to deliver a custom eLearning experience, an on-line assessment and a certificate of completion, usually for compliance purposes. In many cases, these organizations and their targeted learners do not have a common learning platform established to deliver and track eLearning.
