The Teaching Center, along with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, will be piloting Ally in Blackboard this coming fall 2019 term. Ally provides instructors with guidance on how to correct accessibility issues with course content, which means learning materials will work better with assistive technologies for students with disabilities as well as on mobile phones and tablets. Instructors interested in piloting Ally in Blackboard this fall can visit our website to learn more.
