What versions of Blackboard Learn support Ally?
Blackboard Ally is supported on Learn 9.1 Q2 2017 CU3 and above. It is also available for Learn SaaS in both the Original and Ultra Course Views.
Self-hosted Solaris institutions are not supported.
Can you score content in Blackboard Learn's Content Collection before the content is applied to a course?
Ally scores only the content used in a course. Unused content may skew the Institution Report and is not included.
You can upload content to a hidden folder in a course, if instructors want to make accessibility updates before making it available.
Does Ally scan all content in the content collection?
Ally currently only scans items that are attached in the course itself. This means that the reporting will only include items that can be accessed by the student. It does not include unused content.
