Alternate Format Course Materials


1) The Ally tool within UNM Learn courses will generate alternative formats for many common file types (e.g. PDF, Word, PowerPoint). Click the Alternative Formats icon (The Alternative Formats icon is a capital A with a down-arrow next to it. ) next to a file to download it in the format that best suits your needs: ex., tagged PDF, HTML, ePub, electronic braille, audio, etc. To learn more, consult Viewing Content - Alternative Formats.

2) If you are a student with a disability who is having problems with any of the content delivered through UNM Learn, you should contact your instructor and the UNM Accessibility Resource Center. Your instructor may be able to provide you with a more accessible version of the information or make other accessibility accommodations. Resource Center staff can help both of you determine the best format.

 Adaptive Technology Support

Resource Center staff also may be able to provide you with access to adaptive technology that can help you use UNM Learn course sites. The Accessibility Resource Center website contains a listing of computer labs and adaptive software available to Resource Center clients.

Blackboard Learn

Blackboard, the company that develops the Learn software, is committed to ensuring that the software is usable and accessible. Blackboard measures and evaluates accessibility levels using two sets of standards: the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) issued by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act issued by the United States federal government. 

 If you have any concerns regarding the functionality of the UNM Learn application in relation to accessibility, please contact the UNM Learn Support team.
