Learning Design
for All

We are passionate about ensuring all learners can access the courses we build. 

Artisan has been a thought leader in accessible design for over ten years. Accessibility is consistent with our Core Values and social responsibility belief statements. You can regularly catch us at learning conferences sharing everything we know about this important L&D topic. We are founding members of Inspire Accessibility, along with SweetRush and ELB Learning. We have partnered with Proctor & Gamble to spread this message of inclusive design.

So, what does it mean to make learning accessible?

Simply, it means we build our courses so that people with disabilities can learn from them like everyone else.

Building accessible courses includes doing things you see regularly, like adding closed captions for deaf/hard-of-hearing users. There are things you might not notice like choosing sensitive language and ensuring adequate color contrast. And things built behind the scenes, like descriptions of images that a screen reader reads to a blind user.

We use Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and Section 508 as our guides. Some organizations require this, and others understand its value as a part of their Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging work. We believe it’s fundamental for all learning products.
