About this Event

Audience: Faculty, Graduate Teaching Assistants, Staff

Learning Goal:

This session includes an overview of Blackboard Ally and what the indicators (looks like gas gauges) mean and will walk through some tips on fixing specific content in your course.  We will go over how to prioritize what to fix.

  • Describe the Plus-One strategy 
  • List two ways Blackboard Ally can help faculty make their Blackboard course more accessible 
  • Explain how Ally helps students with course material right now
