NILE & Other Technology Guides

Information for Staff


Blackboard Ally is a product which integrates into the NILE platform to enable module tutors to make their digital content more accessible. Blackboard Ally provides students with the choice and flexibility to access online content in a format which suits them. Blackboard Ally is easy to use, it is available in every module site and provides module tutors with quick fixes, inline guidance on how to make content more accessible and a full report on the overall accessibility of a module.

The links below provide a simple introduction to Blackboard Ally and we would also encourage staff to take advantage of scheduled face-to-face training on digital accessibility as well as take advice from the Learning Technology team.
