OUR SERVICE RECORD
" As a Senior Product Manager for our K-12 products at I was faced with the unexpected challenge of an outdated Flash-based set of instructor lessons that failed accessibility standards and threatened adoption if not converted to HTML5. Although the students and teachers using the product loved it, the cost to convert was unexpected and outside of my planned annual budget.
Where other vendors failed, FLG succeeded in evaluating the most valued elements of the eLessons, and developing a cost-effective solution that kept our market happy and our content accessible. "

“I was halfway through a project that required thousands of STEM questions to be authored to include alt-text for all images, most of them extremely complex. Our company couldn’t find any alt-text writers that also knew science content, but also couldn’t find any science SMEs that were familiar with the complexity of alt text standards.
Freedom Learning Group solved both of those problems. Not only do they cross-train their STEM and Accessibility SMEs, but their content teams of military spouses and veterans completely took over coordination and collaboration across the entire project. Frankly it was amazing to watch, and they took pride in their work.”

Our Commitment to Accessibility
Freedom Learning Group, and our instructional design teams of military spouses (some of them full-time caregivers) and veterans (some of them 100% disabled), understand uniquely the challenges that disability, illness, and injury create. We’re committed to fighting with you to tear down the barriers to professional development and educational achievement for your incredible students and learners.
“As the wife of a 100% disabled Navy combat veteran and FLG’s Chief Academic Officer, our evaluation and implementation of accessibility solutions isn’t just about compliance - to us it’s about serving those often under-served, and making an impact on student success for those who are often marginalized in our community”
