Blackboard Ally

Posted by rmt22 at Nov 21, 2019 03:23 PM |
This new feature aids the accessibility of Blackboard by allowing you to download files in different formats quickly and easily.

We are pleased to announce that a new feature called Ally is available in Blackboard from 25 November 2019.

Ally helps to make Blackboard courses more accessible by enabling you to download files in alternative formats. You will see a download button (a small A with an arrow next to it) next to any files. Click on the download button to see which alternative formats are available (example image below):

This will help you by providing greater flexibility in how you use your learning materials, as well as being particularly beneficial for anyone with a disability. For example, you can download html for improved reading on a mobile phone, and audio if you have a visual impairment or want to listen while commuting.

For more information, see Blackboard’s Ally help pages for students.
