Maria Claver: Blackboard Ally
Dr. Maria Claver is a professor of Gerontology and Director of Gerontology Program. She is an early adopter of Blackboard Ally and uses it in her Gerontology 400 course, Perspectives on Aging. Through Blackboard Ally, Dr. Claver can know when a component in her course is not accessible and make adjustments. She is able to maximize students' online learning experiences while contributing to the accessibility awareness at CSULB.
"I really would encourage faculty to just take a shot. Even though we've been faced with a lot of different tools that we can use for our online instruction, this is one that is very worth taking the opportunity to do and to learn. It really helps your class and takes it to the next level without that much of an investment of time and energy."
