Ease Learning is committed to an approach to learning design where DEI considerations are front and center and are not an afterthought. We strongly believe that diversity, equity and inclusion cannot exist if best practices are not embedded into the design process. We have developed a DEI Rubric to help ensure that online learning is more inclusive and invites diversity in order to deliver a richer learning experience.

On this page you will find a number of additional resources that are dedicated to helping drive DEI in the design process and articulate why we feel this is a critical component of learning design.

There are a number of ways we can help your institution make your programs more accessible and inclusive.

What We Do At Ease Learning

We put learners in the center of learning. The result is inclusive, equitable, engaging learning experiences and better overall success for learners. Our methodology is grounded in backward design and considers important aspects of DEI and principles of universal design for learning (UDL). We empower corporations, higher education institutions, and health care organizations to create impactful, inclusive and accessible educational experiences. Our tech-enabled services support validation of skills and identifying gaps in curriculum and the talent pool.

“This work has illustrated mapping of existing nursing content to the draft AACN Essentials through the Skillways platform.  This offers us a way to move toward competency-based education by truly modularizing our content for small-bite delivery because we can measure progress toward outcomes as students proceed along individual paths.”
