Blackboard Ally for Students

Blackboard Ally is integrated with Moodle, meaning you can download alternative formats of instructor content to suit your needs. You can download an alternative format wherever you see the Created with Sketch. download alternative formats icon.

Alternative formats let you take control of your learning by offering you flexibility, choice, and a more personalised user experience.

Alternative formats

Ally can generate the following alternative formats:

  • OCR’d version (for scanned documents)
  • Tagged PDF (currently for Word, PowerPoint and OpenOffice/LibreOffice files)
  • Mobile-friendly HTML
  • Audio
  • ePub
  • Electronic Braille
  • BeeLine Reader
  • Translated Version

Not sure which format is right for you? See Ally's guidance on alternative formats for support.
