Moodle US partners with Brickfield Education Labs to improve accessibility of LMS site content

August 25, 2022 By Kit Germeroth

Moodle US has partnered with Brickfield Education Labs to improve the accessibility and usability of LMS site content for all Moodle users. 

Brickfield Education Labs offers a comprehensive Accessibility Toolkit for Moodle to improve the accessibility of Moodle course content. The Toolkit finds, fixes and futureproof’s client content on Moodle courses by automating the process of accessibility auditing and remediation of course content. It provides learners with the ability to generate accessible file formats. 

“Accessibility should never be an afterthought when creating content,” says Jonathan Moore, Head of Moodle US. “Our partnership with Brickfield Education Labs will help us ensure that our clients are always proactive in creating accessible content, improving usability for all learners.”

“The journey of making course content accessible to all learners starts with the first step of checking the existing content and addressing the issues found,” says Gavin Henrick, Co-Founder of Brickfield. “However, ensuring that new content is accessible when it’s created requires active support for academic and administrative staff. At Brickfield, we enable organizations to build awareness and capacity around accessibility by supporting staff in building accessible content through inbuilt guides and tips, and through our online courses that come free with our subscription.”
