Fix Your Content Day

Fix Your Content Day 2022

A 24-hour global competition to create more inclusive digital learning content. 

Date: This event has passed but can fix your course content at any point.

Last year, CSUSM fixed 8,609 files for accessibility during the Fix Your Content Day (FYCD) event. Scoring will be calculated based on number of fixes and the number of students the campus has, the same way the FYCD scores are calculated.

Faculty will have 24 hours to fix as many accessibility issues with course files as we can. Anything improved in Cougar Courses during this time counts for our score! 🏆 At the end of the event, the campus with the most files fixed is recognized and awarded a prize!

How to Fix Your Content

  1. Open the Ally Accessibility Report on your courses in Cougar Course(s) and start fixing identified issues in the report. Remember, fixes can only be tracked if they happen through Ally directly. Replacing a file through the LMS can’t be reliably tracked and therefore won’t count in your total fixes.

  2. Start clicking those Ally logo for low accessibility score and Ally logo for medium accessibility score indicators in your courses and fix as many files as you can.
    • Tips:
      • Focus on images that need a description and Word documents to start. They're easy to fix and can make a dramatic change on your accessibility score.
      • Aim for 100% but improvement is what counts!

The Ally Team will track fixes in real-time, and you can check your fixes through the usage report in your Ally Institutional Report. 

That was easy, right?
