NKU has purchased an innovative new product called Ally (which is a division of Blackboard), which assists with digital content accessibility.  The University is utilizing Ally in two ways - Ally for LMS (Canvas courses) and Ally for Web (the NKU website).  Ally for LMS integrates with Canvas to provide faculty with instructions to improve accessibility of their course materials.  Ally for Web scans the NKU website weekly and provides a report of all accessibility issues.

This product will help guide us towards a more accessible online environment.  We realize that many will have questions about their responsibilites regarding accessibility.  IT, Marketing and Communications, and CITE, are all available to help.  We can provide information, guidance, assistance, training, and documentation to ensure your content will be accessible for all.
