Add the instructor-facing course accessibility report to your Learning Management System (LMS).

The course accessibility report acts as a complement to the existing accessibility indicators. It provides an accessibility summary and overview at the course level.

The report shows instructors this useful information:

  • Accessibility score for the course
  • Distribution of course content by content type
  • List of all issues identified in the course

Instructors see their course content items that have issues. Instructors can then access the instructor feedback from the report to fix the issue.

The report helps instructors determine priority and gives options for order of fixing. For example, "Content with most severe issues" and "Content that's easiest to fix".

Availability of the course accessibility report will require an update of the Ally Moodle plugins. This update will be made available in the next few weeks, and a separate release announcement will be sent out.
