Education is about sharing. Lumen has a firm commitment to sharing learning materials that meet the needs of learners with variable strengths so that all learners can access and use them effectively. We strive to understand what barriers learners may face and what inclusivity really means and to adhere to guiding principles regarding accessibility in order to be able to create inclusive learning materials.

Lumen Learning embeds training materials about Waymaker into all it's courses. This is "so that [faculty] have easy access to information that will improve the learning experience for [faculty] and ...students. They include key information ... about new features and tips for getting the most out of Waymaker."
Within those training materials there is a section titled "Accessibility Statement". Here they discuss their general commitment to accessibility, Waymaker's current accessibility status and a table showing Waymaker courseware against WCAG 2.0 Level A and AA Success Criteria for each of the four accessibility principles: perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust.

Accessibility information is also not listed throughout the training materials. Reminders about accessibility should not be relegated to only one module. As an example, in the folder "Orient Your Students" there is a suggestion for professors to add their own videos to personalize the course but professors are not reminded to make sure the videos they create and add have closed captioning or a transcript.
