Having course content accessible to everyone is critical to student success. Blackboard Ally automatically creates accessible versions of content loaded into your LMS. It currently works in Canvas, Moodle and Blackboard Learn. It also provides faculty feedback and guidance on the importance of accessibility and how to address barriers along with institutional reports to show progress and improvement. Recently Blackboard has made Ally available to report on public-facing websites as well. Please join us to learn about this powerful tool and services that Blackboard offers to help clients overcome challenges with digital accessibility.
