This product contains the “External Tool (LTI)” which allows an institution to integrate certain outside tools into the technology. This evaluation does not cover any outside tools that may be added by institutions or end users. Additionally, content can be generated and uploaded by users. It is the responsibility of the user to ensure any content they generate or upload is accessible. Accessible content creation is encouraged through the inclusion of alt text fields, heading options and other tools. Some best practices for creating accessible content are also provided in support documentation.
