Zoom Cloud Recordings – What to do?

Zoom cloud recordings will be deleted 30 days after the semester ends. If you need and want to keep them, make sure you download them from Zoom Cloud. Below are resources for assistance:

Ally–an accessibility tool–is coming to Brightspace

Ally is an accessibility tool that seamlessly integrates with Brightspace to make digital course content more accessible for students. The tool automatically checks content for accessibility and generates alternative formats for students to consume the content, including PDF, HTML, Audio, and even electronic Braille.

Ally will be turned on in all courses in the fall term. Information, training, and details will be provided.
