What is Ally?

Have you ever found content in your course that was difficult to read, or you wish came in a different format? With Ally, you can download alternative formats of instructor content directly from your module or organisation in Minerva.

Alternative formats aren’t just for a select group of students. Alternative formats benefit everyone. For example, maybe you have a lot of course material to read and get eye strain, or maybe you’re an auditory learner. Listen to an audio format of the learning materials instead. Choose the format, or formats, that best suit your learning needs.
