We are a mission-driven company dedicated to eliminating barriers in education. With a focus on providing accessibility for all users, YesLMS ensures that training materials are disseminated throughout your entire organization.
Online training, distance learning, and computer-based education continues to become more ubiquitous and widespread as e-learning technology continues to advance. Learning management systems are commonplace at most colleges and universities, as well as an increasing number of businesses, organizations, and government agencies. As a result, educational and training opportunities are available to a wider audience than ever before.
While increasing the number of people who are able to benefit from e-learning is, overall, a good thing, the expanding use of computer-based education technology has not necessarily translated into increased accessibility for individuals who would gain the most from this trend: those who access technology in different ways.
YesLMS was created with the idea of making educational content accessible to every individual. That’s why we’re Your Education System. Most learning management systems do not offer accessibility options that many students need. With backgrounds as educators and vocational rehabilitation counselors, Linda Hedenblad and Doug Gimenes set out to develop a learning management system that provides universal accessibility to all individuals. The result of their effort is YesLMS.
YesLMS users are able to customize the platform to fit their needs, including options for content appearance, site navigation, and user interface. It’s one of the reasons why YesLMS is approved and used by Helen Keller National Center.
YesLMS gives individuals the tools required in order for them to get the same educational experience as their peers. Our learning management system platform offers users an equitable learning experience as those who do not require special devices or accommodations. Many people do not realize that educational materials or training documents are often not formatted with universal accessibility in mind. This can be chalked up to many things, such as a lack of exposure with working alongside individuals with disabilities, a lack of training in how to make documents universally accessible, or just being unaware that accessibility is a problem in the first place. Our mission is to eliminate this problem.
