Blackboard Ally is a tool to help us enhance the usability and accessibility of our course documents. Ally evaluates documents that are uploaded to Blackboard and provides an accessibility score for each file. The tool explains what accessibility issues mean for students and leads us through the steps needed to improve the accessibility of our documents. Please RSVP so that we may plan for your participation and to receive the virtual link to this session.
Monday, May 21, 1:30-2:30 pm in Hemenway Hall 107
Accessible documents make it possible for everyone to access, use and benefit from the content we create. Learn how the new Blackboard Ally tool can help you to identify how accessible your documents are. We will also demonstrate how to create Word documents with headings, descriptions for images, descriptive links and accessible tables. Bring your laptop and a document you would like to workshop and we'll work with you to make it accessible by the end of the session. Please RSVP so that we may plan for your participation and to receive the virtual link to this session.
