As part of the countdown to the festive season, the VLE team and CPED team are sharing their ideas for simple tools or techniques that can make life easier for lecturers and their students. Each day, we are posting a blog entry with some brief tips for lecturers together with links to further information including video guides or web-based resources.Yesterday, we showed how ‘Collaborate’ can be used for virtual meetings or classes. Today, we focus on another tool that is already integrated directly into Weblearn, but which may be under your radar.
Ally is an accessibility tool that enables barrier-free learning for all students not just those with recognised additional needs. Ally provides students with more opportunities to engage through being able to download additional alternative accessible versions of Weblearn course documents.
