Blackboard Ally
QUICK LINKS:   BLACKBOARD ALLY  |  HOW IT WORKS  |  TIPS ON IMPROVING  |  SUPPORT LINKS



A tool designed to help improve the accessibility of your course. Ally promotes awareness of digital course content accessibility and provides easy to follow instructions for remediation of "low-scoring content".

 


How It Works


1. Blackboard will show you how accessible your course is with an indicator.

2. Blackboard will try to fix it for you, or guide you through a step-by-step process.

3. Students will not see the indicators, but will have access to alternative accessible formats.
