Blackboard Ally, a plugin within the Moodle environment, uses machine learning algorithms to automatically provide alternative formats for course content, giving students immediate access to more accessible alternatives.
You are invited to attend an interactive workshop for staff in Keynes Computer Room and take a more in depth look at Kent’s current Ally usage and future plans. There will be opportunities to share your experience of using Ally (both staff and students) and a networking sandwich lunch will be available for those who are able to stay.
The day comprises three distinct sessions aimed at particular audiences (please see the full event programme for more information), and you are very welcome to attend all three or just an individual selected event.
Refreshments will be provided and Blackboard will be bringing lots of ‘swag’ aka free promotional gifts and freebies!
Please book using the EventBrite booking form
