Center for Innovative Teaching & Learning - ALLY


Towards our efforts to create content that is more accessible for all of our students, the Blackboard ALLY tool is now available within Blackboard.   ALLY analyzes your content, notifies you as to the accessibility of your content, and instructs you regarding how to make it more accessible.  Further, ALLY allows students to access your content in different formats including HTML, readable PDF, electronic braille, ePub, and audio (mp3).      

Take a moment to watch the short video below to see what ALLY is and how it works.

Getting Started

If you are interested in using Blackboard ALLY in your course site, please email citl@wku.edu.  A member of our team will reach out help you get started.
