What is UDOIT?

UDOIT is an accessibility checker for Canvas (ICON) courses. It stands for Universal Design Online Inspection Tool and is developed by the University of Central Florida.  It identifies elements that may not be accessible to all students and provides suggestions for fixing them.

Accessing UDOIT

All instructors in ICON can access UDOIT in the ICON navigation menu to the left.  If UDOIT is not available, you can check your ICON navigation settings or contact the ITS Help Desk.

Getting Started

UDOIT is already loaded on all ICON courses. To get started, you can just click on it in your navigation menu and follow directions. You’ll be able to decide if you want to use the tool to fix potential issues, or just identify them. The How-To Guides will give more information about how to run UDOIT and use it to fix errors.
