Blackboard Ally & Accessible Course Content

Blackboard provides an accessibility feature called Ally.  Whether you are an instructor or a student, learn how Ally can help lead you towards better overall learning experiences  through Blackboard. 

For Instructors

As you upload files into your Blackboard course, Blackboard Ally automatically scans your original content and performs a series of steps to make the material more accessible while not touching your original material uploaded.

Gain an better understanding of how Blackboard Ally works for Instructors for you to provide more accessible course content to all of your students.

For Students

You have the ability to download your course content in multiple alternative formats, in addition to the original format your instructor provides.  Some examples are audio (mp3), ePub, HTML, and tagged PDF file formats.  See how to access the alternative formats through Blackboard of your course content to possibly raise the chance of you absorbing more course information and earning better grades! 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
