UDOIT Integration

Overview

The Universal Design Online content Inspection Tool, or UDOIT (pronounced, “You Do It”) enables faculty to identify accessibility issues in their Canvas course content. It will scan a course, generate a report, and provide resources on how to address common accessibility issues.  It was created by the Center for Distributed Learning (CDL) at the University of Central Florida (CDL).

UDOIT will identify “errors” and provide “suggestions” in the following areas of your course:

  • Announcements

  • Assignments

  • Discussions

  • Files (i.e., .html files)

  • Pages

  • Syllabus

  • Module URLs

It will check for the appropriate use of the following:

  • Use of headings in page structure

  • Alternative text for images

  • Table headers

  • Color contrast

  • Descriptive link text

  • Video captions

Please note: some items cannot be examined by UDOIT. These include external documents and some videos/audio files for captioning/transcripts.

UDOIT is available in your course navigation menu.

For more information about UDOIT from the instructor perspective, please visit the UDOIT Information Page.
