Ally is an external tool integrated into Canvas to support accessibility and universal design for students and instructors at Virginia Tech. Ally scans uploaded instructor content within Canvas and assigns an accessibility score to each file. Instructors can then work at their own pace to enhance the usability of the content using guided feedback. All students have access to on-demand alternative versions of course files. In this course, we will review the Ally tool and how its different components help both instructors and students.
