Blackboard Ally, 10/3/18, 1:25 - 2:15 pm, Edwards 100B
Accessibility of your online content is a serious matter. Not all students self identify with the Accessibility Services office that they have a disability, or require special services. Ally is a tool within Blackboard that gives you an indication of how accessible your content is, and directions on how to adjust that content. By making your course content accessible, you provide all students with higher quality content for increased learning potential. In this session you will see a demonstration of what is coming and have the opportunity to opt in for early adoption before the system rolls out campus wide.
