eCornell aims to provide online learning – experiences that are accessible, usable, and welcoming to all people. Courses are designed to conform with Section 508 standards and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (“WCAG”) 2.0 AA published by the World Wide Web Consortium. Courses offer captioning for all videos, full-text transcripts, and screen-reader compatibility. eCornell reviews courses against accessibility guidelines quarterly to identify and mitigate potential usability issues.

eCornell encourages students to contact us directly with any accessibility feedback or needs. If you need accommodations, please contact us before your courses start, if possible. You can reach us through our Help Desk at or 1-800-801-0287 (+1-607-330-3200 from outside US).
