In response to state and local policies, the Washington State Community and Technical College system is working to improve course content accessibility through a seven college pilot using Blackboard Ally. Designed to integrate with several LMS, Ally allows faculty to scan their courses for accessibility problems, recommend ways to make materials more accessible, and provide an institutional accessibility data. This presentation will discuss feedback from faculty, staff, and students and demonstrate how Ally is helping WSCTC meet their accessibility goals.
