Blackboard Ally


Learn your way with ALLY

Have you ever found content in your course that was difficult to read, or you wish came in a different format? Blackboard ALLY is the  answer. 

The ALLY alternative formats tool allows you to convert files uploaded to Blackboard by your lecturers into a wide range of different formats, including:

  • Tagged pdf – this is a structured pdf that is more useable to some assistive technology.
  • HTML – for viewing in web browsers and on mobile devices.
  • EPub – for reading as an e-book on e-readers and mobile devices.
  • Electronic braille - for use on electronic braille displays that work with BRF files.
  • Audio – for listening to a resource. Playable on any devices that can play MP3 files.
  • Translated version – Prefer to read in your first language? ALLY can translate course documents into 30 different languages.

You can download your favourite format anywhere you see the ALLY alternative format icon on Blackboard - great for learning your way on the go.
