Utah Institutions Sign With Blackboard Ally for Accessibility Help
April 4, 2018

The Utah Education Network -- comprised of nine institutions including state universities, technical colleges and a community college -- has contracted with Blackboard to connect students to online courses through the Blackboard Ally inclusive learning platform, which aims to improve accessibility for all students.

Blackboard Ally integrates with an institution's learning management system and runs course materials through a checklist of common accessibility issues. Then it generates a list of alternatives for instructors' original content. More than 210,000 students and 40,000 instructors will have access to Blackboard Ally as a result of the partnership.
