What is UDOIT?

UDOIT is a tool for improving web accessibility within Canvas. It allows faculty and other course designers to scan a course, generate a report, and learn how to address common accessibility issues.  

Installing UDOIT

Please fill out this UDOIT request form so a learning technologist can install the latest version of this tool for you. Once installed, UDOIT will appear in your Canvas course navigation, though it will be hidden for students. This tool will only appear for those with the Teacher, TA, UTA, or Designer role in Canvas.
