UDOIT Tool available in Canvas beginning Thurs., April 28

accessibility
As part of Accessibility Action week, we are thrilled to announce that we are one of the first SBCTC colleges to be able to put the UDOIT tool into our Canvas instance!

What is UDOIT? UDOIT is a tool that can quickly check your full course for Accessibility.  It also provides information on how to fix any issues that make viewing/using your content difficult or impossible for someone using a screen reader or other assistive device.  For example, it will show you how to add styles to your text and alternative text on your images and tables.

As of this Thursday, April 28, you will see it in the left hand navigation in your Canvas classes.  It’s a “teacher only” tool so students will not be able to see it.

If you would like to learn more, please join us Thurs., April 28 for a UDOIT Party in Room 4214 from 1:30-3 p.m.! We will show you how to use the UDOIT tool and then let you try it on your own courses. In addition, the Accessibility FLC has put together a handy checklist if you want to check your course that way. FLC Members will be present to help you quickly make improvements.

If you have any questions, please ask!
