BUiD named winner of Blackboard’s Inaugural Fix Your Content Day Challenge

BUiD has been named the MENA region winner of Blackboard’s Fix Your Content Day Challenge 2021, a day of action and impact that brought together institutions from across the globe to dedicate 24 hours to improving the accessibility of as many digital course files as possible through Blackboard Ally. BUiD has now won this award for two consecutive years.


The Fix Your Content Day Challenge was held on Global Accessibility Awareness Day, celebrated each year on the third Thursday of May, to help make an immediate and tangible impact on the accessibility of students’ online learning experience. BUiD was one of 115 participating higher education institutions and contributed to improving the accessibility of over 1422 course files through Blackboard Ally throughout the challenge.


Institutions who do not have Blackboard Ally were also invited to participate by submitting innovative “Accessibility Impact Plans,” demonstrating how they’re actively taking steps to make their campuses more inclusive. The challenge underscores Blackboard and the global education community’s shared commitment to creating a culture of accessibility and inclusion for all learners.
