Canvas - Integration - UDOIT

The UDOIT Cloud Course Accessibility checker has been approved for use within the University of Wisconsin System Digital Learning Environment. It will be available in all Canvas courses in the DLE (excluding Madison) starting October 12, 2020.

UDOIT is designed to assist faculty with improving the accessibility of their Canvas courses. It scans Canvas courses, provides easy-to interpret suggestions, and can automatically repair many common accessibility issues. For an overview of the tool, see the UDOIT Cloud Accessibility Tool page from Cidi Labs. 



Instructors with questions about using UDOIT should reach out to their local campus IT Help Desk or Canvas administrators. 

If the campus Canvas administrator determines there's a setup or configuration issue that requires escalation to the UWSA DLE team or the vendor, they can submit a ticket to (please mention "Canvas" or "DLE" so the ticket gets routed correctly).
