Ally in bCourses

Ally is a set of tools within bCourses that helps make course content more accessible by allowing students and instructors to convert files to HTML, EPUB, electronic braille or MP3 (audio). The Ally tool also provides instructors with visual indicators gauging the accessibility of source files and assigns an accessibility score to each uploaded file.

Course Evaluations

Course Evaluations at Berkeley offers departments the opportunity to coordinate course evaluations through a customizable online system with easy management and reporting. This campus-provided common-good service is managed by RTL and is available to departments who have opted into the service.

Academic Integrity

Academic Integrity services at Berkeley provide students and instructors with tools that integrate with bCourses Assignments to promote compliance with Berkeley's Honor Code. These opt-in tools are enabled through bCourses, allowing Instructors and GSIs to review Assignment submissions for originality.
