Monitor and improve course accessibility at your institution.

Blackboard Ally provides an institution-wide course content accessibility report that allows for deep insight and understanding into how the institution is performing and evolving from a course content accessibility point of view. This report helps track progress and can help highlight problem areas and identify initiatives that can further help improve accessibility at the institution.

Share a link to the report

Instructors and administrators can access the report from their LMS. You can also choose to let them access the report outside of the LMS. To give them access you need to send them the link to the report along with the client key and secret they'll need to use to sign in.

There is only one client key and secret for each institution. If you don't know what your's is, submit a case to request your key and secret on Behind the Blackboard.

Use one of these URLS and replace [ClientId] with your Client Id.
