We’re excited to announce a new tool coming soon to Blackboard called Ally. Ally provides you guidance on how to correct accessibility issues with your digital course content, which means your learning materials will work better on mobile phones and tablets as well as with assistive technologies. Your students will also be able to download “alternative formats” of your files by clicking the dropdown icon next to the file name, and choosing a version of the file most appropriate for their device and need. 

If you are a faculty member who would like to activate Ally in your Blackboard course when it becomes available, please fill out this request form.

To keep up to date on the most recent news and information on Blackboard Ally, follow us on Facebook, and Twitter.
