Friday 17:15h Blackboard

Blackboard Ally, the solution to ensure accessibility to digital contents in learning platforms and VLEs. If main digital learning platforms and virtual learning environments follow accessibility standards , it does not happen the same with educational contents. Blackboard Ally integrates into the systems used, without interrupting or modifying the work being carried out. It scans the whole course content so that accessibility problems can be identified, offering a report for the institution and teachers.
Its immediate advantage for students are Machine Learning Algorithms which extract information to generate accessible formats automatically.
