The University of Notre Dame, the nation’s leading Catholic research university, recently deployed YuJa Panorama Digital Accessibility Platform to help deliver on its commitment to create course materials that are accessible to students of all backgrounds and abilities and to make the learning environment inclusive for all.

“Our goal is to support student flourishing. One way we can do that is by cultivating an inclusive environment that encourages students to achieve their full potential.”

The institution was seeking a digital accessibility platform that would integrate with Canvas, its learning management system, and that would provide high level reporting to help leaders understand accessibility across all levels of the university. In addition to providing real-time feedback and reporting, institutional leaders liked that the YuJa Panorama provides tools for students, such as providing a variety of alternative formats and a website accessibility tool that gives students control over the UI, design, and readability of websites both inside and outside of the LMS environment.

“At YuJa, it’s our goal to provide higher education institutions with the tools they need to create inclusive learning materials for all students,” said Nathan Arora, Chief Business Officer at YuJa, Inc. “We are proud that higher-ed institutions like the University of Notre Dame trust us to deliver and provide support for solutions that help them create a more inclusive and accessible learning environment.”

“Our goal is to support student flourishing. One way we can do that is by cultivating an inclusive environment that encourages students to achieve their full potential,” said Daniel Skendzel, Executive Director of Notre Dame Studios and Teaching & Learning Technologies (NDSTLT).  “When students have equal access to educational material, they are more likely to improve learning outcomes and achieve academic success.”
