Ally

Blackboard Integration

Ally integrates with Blackboard to convert your new and existing content into more accessible forms for your students to easily access.

Built in Support

Ally provides built in support to help you learn how to create more accessible documents and explains why your documents are not currently accessible.

Accessibility Scores

Ally generates a score for each item in your Blackboard class. This score shows you how strong your accessibility is and as an alert to potentially inaccessible items.

VoiceThread

VoiceThread Universal

Voicethread Universal works with screen reader technology to make voicethread accessible. Its designed to be full heard and not just seen.

Multiple Formats

Voicethread offers multiple ways of engaging with content and students and has many different ways for students to interact with their peers and express their knowledge and learning.

Echo360

Replayability

Echo360 allows users to rewatch videos multiple times and at varying speeds so that students can review content in different ways and go back to lectures to go review before exams.

Automatic Speech Recognition

Courses being captured via Echo360 can request to have their videos transcribed through Amazon's Automatic Speech Recognition software. This is a machine-transcription provided by Echo360, and while does not meet the accuracy requirement for Closed Captions (99%), it can serve as a great starting point for faculty to edit and correct transcriptions. 

Active Learning Tools

Echo360's Active Learning Tools help foster greater access to content. Built-in time-stamped bookmarking, confusion flags, and question-and-answer cards can help provide real-time live updates to instructors and students.
