Access University is a digital accessibility training platform from a company called Level Access. Digital accessibility training is important for anyone at the University of Delaware who creates digital content such as documents (e.g., PDF, Excel, Word, InDesign, etc.), websites, and multimedia, as well as those in administrative positions who need to understand the impact of accessibility at our institution and the applicable laws our institution must abide by.

How to navigate a course
The courses in Access University provide two different ways to navigate a course.
When you click on a course title, you will be taken to a page that displays the full course content. You can work your way down the page content (including text, videos, self-assessments, and a final exam) to complete the course, or use the course navigation, located on the upper-left-hand side of the screen.
Recommended: We recommend using the course navigation on the upper-left-hand side of the screen to break the course content into more digestible chunks of information.
Course "Welcome" page
The course Welcome page/section provides some very useful information, including:
- course audience (e.g., content authors, programmers, managers, legal counsel, etc.),
- prerequisite courses you should complete,
- course objectives and outline,
- completion requirement (i.e., a link to the final exam),
- and a time estimate for the length of the course.
How to complete a course
The final exam is required to complete the course. The self-assessments are optional.
Each time you complete a course you will receive a Course Completion Certificate that you can send to your supervisor or refer to during performance appraisal season as proof of completion.
Note: It can take up to 24 hours for your report to be updated and your certificate to be available after completing a course.
Download or email your certificate in the Reflect section of the course(s) you completed.
