Canvas Accessibility

The Canvas learning management system (LMS) which the college utilizes to deliver online courses and provide a virtual space for document dissemination for ground courses is built using modern HTML and CSS coding. Canvas' Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) describes the product's conformance with W3C's Web Accessibility Initiative (WCAG 2.1) Level A and Level AA guidelines and Section 508 standards.
