Blackboard for Instructors - Accessibility Solutions

Below are some tools in Blackboard that will help make your course accessible.



Accessibility and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) are important considerations to keep in mind when designing and delivering courses. Designing accessible courses provides educational opportunities to all students. For example, a captioned video is not only helpful to students with hearing issues, it benefits non-native English speakers also. Making changes to course content with a focus on UDL and accessibility provides a sense of independence and inclusion to all students, whether they report a disability or not.
