Canvas Update: Accessibility Checker and Announcements Changes

New Feature: Universal Design Online Content Inspection Tool (UDOIT)

UDOIT allows you to check for and resolve accessibility issues across your course. This tool is used at many institutions and was developed as an open-source tool by the University of Central Florida. Refer to our updated post on Creating Accessible Materials for information on developing accessible course materials. If you have any questions, email edtech@dartmouth.edu.

In this video (above), Adam Nemeroff explains how to check Canvas sites for accessibility issues.

New Feature: Announcements

If you have a multi-section course, you are now able to choose to send announcements to either specific section(s) or an entire class. 

Choose the section(s) you want the announcement to go to.
