Making your Blackboard Content Accessible

  • Have you ever wondered what the dials next to your content mean in Blackboard?
  • Have you seen the Ally Accessibility Report in your Blackboard course but weren’t sure what to do with it?
  • Do you want to make your Blackboard content more accessible, but aren’t sure where to start?

If the answer to any of these questions is Yes, then our new Introduction to Ally course is one for you.

And if you are wondering what Ally even is, then this course is definitely one for you.

The E-learning Essentials: Introduction to Blackboard Ally course (26 February) will take you through the basics of using Ally to check and fix accessibility issues in documents you have uploaded to Blackboard. Ally was introduced back in September (view the blog post introducing Ally) and is available in all 2023-24 Blackboard courses.

If you are interested in creating accessible documents using tools in Microsoft Office packages like Word and PowerPoint, we also have a Creating Accessible Learning Materials session running on 7th March.

All staff are welcome to attend – book your place on the training course booking page.
