Texas Tech University did a campus-wide rollout of Blackboard Ally on all higher education and K-12 courses. This included using Ally on two separate Blackboard hosted instances. The university's eLearning department developed a marketing plan, training documents, a website and faculty help sessions to assist faculty with making sure course content is accessible for all learners. This session will discuss how the university piloted Ally first, then moved to a campus-wide implementation. Presenters will discuss the biggest hurdles to a campus-wide implementation that have to be overcome, faculty concerns, support processes and how we assist faculty with updating content.
