Moving from Red to Green: Ally in bCourses

May 6 @ 1:00 PM - 2:15 PM

Online via Zoom,

Ever wonder about the red indicators next to your bCourses files? The Ally tool provides instructors with visual indicators (students do not see the indicators) gauging the accessibility of files and assigns an accessibility score. Attend this workshop to learn how to improve the accessibility of your bCourses files so students using assistive technologies can better access content. For an overview of this tool visit https://youtu.be/k5hg0Qm_4Ms(link is external).

In addition to providing accessibility indicators, the Ally tool also converts files to HTML, EPUB, electronic braille, MP3 (audio), and over 30 translated languages. This supports students with disabilities, English language learners, and students who prefer to engage with learning materials on mobile devices.

If you cannot attend this workshop but have further questions, please contact allyhelp@berkeley.edu(link sends e-mail).
