Digication is an e-portfolio platform in which students can create web-based portfolios with multimedia content. Since Digication is a content creation platform, this page has information about both the accessibility of the portfolio creation platform as well as information about the accessibility of the portfolios that are created by users. Portfolio creators are responsible for following best practices to create accessible content in the platform.
