RIT is an institution committed to providing an inclusive learning environment for all students. All materials used by RIT when providing its programs and services must be accessible to individuals with disabilities. Accessibility of course materials also benefits a wide range of learners, not just those with disclosed disabilities. This wiki space includes resources about accessibility requirements in general, how to improve course materials using specific tools, using the Ally tool in myCourses, frequently asked questions, and more. Use the table of contents navigation to the left or the search box below.
Ally Tool in myCourses
The Anthology Ally tool within myCourses automatically reviews course materials against accessibility standards and provides just-in-time training for instructors. Students also get access to automatically-generated alternative file formats for many course materials. Ally is a proactive approach to accessibility and is intended to complement existing services provided by the Disability Services Office (DSO) and the Department of Access Services (DAS).
Training about the tool can be found in the pages of this wiki.
For information on new features in the Ally tool, review the Ally Release Notes.
