Statistically 2 students out of every online class of 25 students need web ADA accommodations. As colleges offer more classes online, not only are they challenged with getting the class online but also with the task of ensuring accessibility. Most higher education institutions are not able to easily meet the need of students with disabilities in an online environment, putting schools at risk for lawsuits and fines. Hands-On Learning (HOL) is now offering a solution that alleviates those challenges and allows students with disabilities a robust online learning experience using HOLcloud.

HOLcloud is the only interactive educational platform that is fully compliant with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.0. HOL is committed to creating an equivalent experience for all students by providing content that is accessible anytime, anywhere, and on any device. HOLcloud utilizes a simple, user-friendly interface designed to reduce the educator’s time spent on non-teaching activities. Thanks to HOLcloud, higher education institutions can now offer online classes that meet all the requirements of web accessibility regulations with confidence. In fact, major universities around the United States have already tested and deployed HOLcloud to ensure WCAG compliance.

“HOL is changing the way online education is conceived, consumed and taught throughout the world,” said Kevin Melendy, CEO. “Now we can provide students with disabilities the same great learning experience as the rest of their peers. HOLcloud allows an entirely new way of delivering content online in a more conducive, intuitive, and engaging way than ever before.
