Technical Queries

The latest version of WCAG Standards is 2.1 and SQE content is WCAG 2.1 compliant. Our conformance to WCAG standards in terms of SQE content can be proved to customers by sharing the Oxford Learning Link VPAT.

The Canvas platform hosts OUP’s SQE products and as a platform, it has its own WCAG compliance standards. The level to which Canvas comply with WCAG standards can be seen here. In broad terms, Canvas has been evaluated by Instructure and WebAIM according to WCAG 2.1 standards, and testing on the platform is regularly conducted using automated tools, assistive technology (such as screen readers, keyboard testing, etc.), and coding best practices.

User data for the SQE products is hosted on an Amazon Web Services (AWS) server located in the US. OUP has a contractual agreement with Amazon for this purpose that covers data protection globally and is in compliance with UK GDPR.

More information on the scope of AWS cloud security can be found here, where Amazon have a section specifically on data privacy.

OUP directs AWS on where and when data is stored and managed - there is a DPA in place with AWS for this purpose.

These two public releases explain how the AWS DPA complies with GDPR, including for transfers to countries who have not received an adequacy decision (like the US):



This is due to a setting in the Moodle VLE. To resolve this, ask your VLE administrator to amend the external tool settings so that the "launch container" setting for the e-book link is set to "new window". For more information, see Moodle documentation here here
