UDOIT Integration

Wednesday, January 22, 2020 - 12:15pm

Starting on January 27th, all UMN courses will have access to the Universal Design Online content Inspection Tool (UDOIT).  UDOIT helps instructors create a more inclusive and equitable learning experience in Canvas by scanning course content and offering suggestions to correct accessibility concerns.  Inside UDOIT, there are options to fix the accessibility concerns with explanations of what the concerns are. 

UDOIT scans the following areas of Canvas:

  • pages
  • assignments
  • quizzes
  • files
  • announcements
  • syllabus page
  • module URLs

To learn more about UDOIT, check out the OIT page Canvas: Use UDOIT to Scan a Course for Accessibility Issues.  This page includes videos on common UDOIT errors and how to correct them.

There will be webinar on UDOIT April 23rd from 11:00-12:00 online facilitated by LATIS and ATSS.
