About The Webinar

Improve Your Students’ Digital Learning Experience 

Hear from Coastal Carolina University on how they are tackling their toughest accessibility challenges with Blackboard Ally inside of their Moodle™  environment.

Since the transition to remote instruction, efforts have increased to identify accessibility barriers to the digital experience to ensure no student is left behind in the transition. For higher education institutions, this includes addressing barriers to digital course materials within the Learning Management System. And while most recognize the need and benefits of creating a more inclusive learning environment, many remain uncertain where to start in proactively addressing equity and access barriers with course content.

Start your journey to inclusion with our accessibility solution: Blackboard Ally. 

In this session, you will learn how Blackboard Ally provides institutions with a scalable, sustainable, inclusive learning solution that improves the experience for students, instructors, and administrators, by:

  • Automatically creating more accessible course content formats (electronic braille, audio files, semantic HTML, and more) 
  • Providing in-app faculty guidance on how to make documents more accessible,
  • Offering in-app data and analytics for administrators and instructor

Duration: 1 hour
