Blackboard (Students) - Accessibility/Ally: The Blackboard Ally Icon

This document provides an overview of what the Blackboard Ally icon is and does.

Capitol A with a down pointing arrow - the Blackboard Ally iconBy clicking this icon, you can download alternative formats of files to better meet your learning needs.

"Alternative formats aren't just for a select group of students. Alternative formats benefit everyone. For example, maybe you have a lot of course material to read and get eye strain, or maybe you’re an auditory learner. Listen to an audio format of the file your instructor uploaded instead.

Don’t stick to just one format! Use as many formats as you want. For example, if the content isn’t in your first language, you could follow along in the ePub as you listen to the audio file. All from the comfort of your favorite coffee shop or study corner.

Choose the format, or formats, that best suit your learning needs."

Visit the Blackboard page for Alternative Formats to learn more about each of the formats and how they can best serve you.

For help downloading the formats, visit this ITS Knowledge Base article.
