Blackboard ALLY Student Resources

Have you ever accessed a file in your course that was difficult to read, or you wish came in a different format? Now you can download alternative formats directly from your course. For example, if the content isn’t in your first language, you could follow along in the ePub as you listen to the audio file. All from the comfort of your favorite coffee shop or study corner.

What Can Students Expect?

Have you ever accessed a file in your course that was difficult to read, or you wish came in a different format? Now, using Blackboard Ally, you can download alternative formats directly from your course.

The alternative formats created depend on the original file type. If you don't see an option to download alternative formats, the file is not a supported content type.

Find a file attached to your course. Select the menu beside it and select Alternative formats. Choose the version that best suits your needs!

We've also added a short video that shows students how to access Alternative Formats in ALLY.

Not Sure Which Format to Choose?

Blackboard has created a succinct table that you can use to decide which Alternative Format you should use. You can take a look at it by going to the Which format should I use? link.
