Blackboard LearnでのAlly設定の詳細


Anthology Allyは管理者に、教育機関全体のコースコンテンツのアクセシビリティレポートを提供します。これにより、コースコンテンツのアクセシビリティという観点から、所属教育機関のパフォーマンスや成長している点について深く考察し把握することができます。このレポートは進捗状況の追跡に役立ちます。また、問題のある領域を強調し、教育機関のアクセシビリティの向上に役立つイニシアチブの特定を促します。





教員は、コンテンツのアクセシビリティスコアを確認したら、アクセシビリティの問題点を探し出してコンテンツを改善し、スコアを上げることができます。  コンテンツがアクセス可能であることは、すべての対象者にとって重要です。Allyは一般的な問題点を理解しコンテンツを改善するためのツールを教育機関に提供します。



Allyから詳細なフィードバックとサポートが提供されるため、アクセシビリティに関する専門知識を身につけることができます。アクセシビリティの問題点、それが問題となる理由、それらの問題を解決する方法について学びます。緑色 (満点) を目指しましょう!

Ally Admin Bb Learn FAQs

What versions of Blackboard Learn support Ally?

Anthology 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.

Why don't I see Ally Configuration in my Administrator panel?

You need Blackboard Learn SaaS 3700.3.0 or Blackboard Learn Q4 2019 (or higher) to see Ally Configuration in the Administrator panel.

If you are on the right release, Blackboard Learn doesn’t always automatically pick up on this new link when upgrading to this release. If that’s the case, you can toggle the availability of the Ally Building Block to Off and then to On again. At that point, the Ally Configuration link will become available.

If you are on an earlier release, we provide you with instructions on how to access Ally Configuration during set up.

If you still don't have access, submit a request on Behind the Blackboard.

Ultra Accessibility Checker (Powered by Ally) 

The Ultra Accessibility Checker (Powered by Ally) is a built-in feature of Blackboard Learn Ultra. The Ultra Accessibility Checker scans content in the rich content editor of Ultra Documents. The feature identifies and improves accessibility issues in Ultra Documents by leveraging the power of Ally’s WYSIWYG (What You See is What You Get) checking and feedback functionality.

If your institution does not have an Ally license. The Ultra Accessibility Checker Powered by Ally will be on by default.  Ally WYSIWYG content is focused within the rich content editor of Ultra Documents only and does not represent a full Ally license.
If your institution has an active Ally license. The Ultra Accessibility Checker Powered by Ally is a new configuration and is off by default. You don't need to turn this setting on. If you turn on this setting, your Ally Service Availability will turn off. To avoid issues, we recommend not turning on Ultra Accessibility Checker Powered by Ally as it is not required for your active Ally license to work.
