Understanding UDOIT

Universal Design Online Content Inspection Tool, or UDOIT (pronounced "You Do It”) is a tool in Canvas designed to identify accessibility issues within your course and provides guidance to correct them. Doing so will help your course meet Quality Course Review requirements and create a learning environment that meets the needs of all students.

Note: UDOIT is meant to be used as a guide, not a certification. It only checks for common accessibility issues, and is not comprehensive; a clean report in UDOIT does not necessarily mean that your course is fully accessible. Likewise, the tool may indicate a possible accessibility issue where one does not exist.

What items does UDOIT Scan?

UDOIT scans the following items in a Canvas course:

  • Announcements
  • Assignments
  • Discussions
  • Files
  • Pages
  • Syllabus
  • Module URLS

Will UDOIT catch every accessibility issue in my Canvas course?

UDOIT will identify most accessibility concerns in content that is local to Canvas, but any files that are uploaded or that are from Third-Party tools, such as Panopto, will not be checked for accessibility issues.

In conjunction with UDOIT, complete the following to address these external documents:
