Blackboard Ally

Blackboard Ally helps institutions build a more inclusive learning environment and improve the student experience by helping them take clear control of course content with usability, accessibility, and quality in mind. Improving the accessibility of course material ensures that students in your class who may be diverse learners or an individual with a disability who relies on assistive technology will have equal access to information. 

Visit the ATS website to add Ally to your Blackboard courses.
