Brickfield Accessibility Tool for Students

15 April 2024 Posted in: Announcements, News Tagged: , By: Catherine Mclean

As part of Queen Mary’s commitment to the national accessibility legislation (2018), we are excited to announce the launch of the Brickfield Accessibility Toolkit within QMplus. This will be replacing Ally as our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) accessibility tool.

The toolkit aims to enhance your learning by ensuring that course content is accessible to all. It also gives you the option to convert your documents into alternate formats, using Sensus Access.

When is it being launched?

The toolkit and file conversion options will be available on QMplus from Wednesday 17th April 2024.

What will change in QMplus?

You will notice coloured circular icons next to resources in your QMplus course areas. You can use the icons to convert content into a range of different media.

Can I convert my own documents?

Yes. If you have a document outside of QMplus that you would like to convert, you can do so via your QMplus profile.
