Event Details

This event will demonstrate two exciting tools that will be integrated into CloudDeakin platforms in Trimester 2: Blackboard Ally and Kaltura Reach.

 

Blackboard Ally will be integrated into the new D2L. It allows students to access alternative formats or translations of resources in the unit site with the click of a button next to each resource. It also gives teachers an accessibility rating for each resource, with customised instructions on how to improve the accessibility of that resource. It also provides overall accessibility reports for whole unit sites, listing issues in order of importance. Reports are available at unit and institutional level, to enable support staff to target professional development and support effectively.

 

Kaltura Reach automatically adds machine-generated captions and transcripts to video on DeakinAir. The captions have 75%-85% accuracy and are usually created within 30 minutes. New videos in DeakinAir will automatically be captioned from the beginning of Trimester 2. Captions and transcripts can also be requested for existing video.

 

The demonstration will include:

  • Brief explanation of benefits of digitally accessible resources for a range of students and learning contexts
  • How students access alternative formats (HTML,  tagged OCR PDF, ePub, electronic braille, Beeline Reader or translations into 50 languages) for unit resources
  • How teachers access an accessibility rating for each unit resource, and find customised instructions to fix accessibility issues
  • Reports available to teachers and faculty administrators to target accessibility issues
  • How to access and request captions in DeakinAir video, using Kaltura Reach.
  • Q&A.
