Creating an Ally Course Report in Blackboard

Instructors can create an Ally Course Report in any of their courses in order to see a complete description of any inaccessible materials in the course.  The report remains live once it is created and will continue to track any materials that are added to the course after the report is created, as well as remove corrected content from the list of inaccessible items.
