Our Story

The VR Development Group (VRDG) began with the mission of providing high quality courses written by experienced vocational rehabilitation professionals.

While searching for a way to deliver our courses we discovered that existing learning management systems (LMSs) weren’t accessible enough. Instead of getting frustrated, we got to work! We founded YesLMS to build an LMS from the ground up, with an unbending focus on maximizing accessibility. By combining the VRDG library of courses with the YesLMS platform, we now offer VR agencies “YesVR.”

Today, thousands of VR professionals at dozens of agencies count on YesVR for training. And we count on them for guidance and inspiration. By constantly soliciting their input, our customers have helped us improve and grow.

Our small, diverse team includes a woman co-owner and a minority co-owner; 1/4 of our team is comprised of people with disabilities.

Learn more about VRDG
YesLMS gives us the gift of time. It has all the fundamental courses needed (and then some) when onboarding new hires. We created a robust onboarding program that allows our training team to focus on practicing what they have learned. With the fundamentals covered in the on-demand courses, it gives us the freedom to focus on mastery of skill and to build other needed areas of content specific to our state and our case management system.
Tammi Williams
PhD, Michigan Rehabilitation Services
I love the VRDG courses. They really are written in a practical way. I can apply what I learned. As a screen reader user, I also enjoy how easy the content is to access. Keep it up!

Shawnese Laury - Johnson
VR Bureau of Blind Services
The YesLMS platform is not only designed with accessibility in mind, but new users have an effortless and intuitive experience creating specific topics for various audiences of all abilities. It is a cost-effective solution you can implement to improve training outcomes and build training capacity, educational products, and resources in your organization.
