Can anyone recommend someone that is versed in Ally for Canvas? Every call I've had with Bb has been disappointing as soon as I mention Canvas. I wasn't able to connect with the Bb Ally Team at InstructureCon17 but would really like to get my Canvas specific questions answered.
Or if there are any campuses that are currently piloting or using it that would be willing to Zoom with my team to discuss and share (please let me know)?
Thanks for your time,
We are looking into piloting Blackboard Ally. I am surprised that you are having difficulty connecting with them. They definitely connect with Canvas and we were able to get a demo phone call. I can talk to the sales rep on who you can contact to have a successful conversation with them.
I can let you know if we are going to be purchasing it or not for this year.
We are also using Ally with Canvas and the integration is seamless. I'm also happy to set you up with the contacts that I have with Blackboard Ally support. I think it's a pretty new team so perhaps some growing pains? It's good feedback to share with them for sure. We were working initially with the Ally Development team during our pilot phase this Winter/Spring but we formally transition to our Blackboard support team today! It's a great tool and we're super excited to be able to have it on our campus.
I'm also happy to chat with you.
Yes, we have yet to see anything specifically about Canvas. Our demo was only in Blackboard and the on-boarding call was exclusive to Bb too. Since the call, we have opted to only try it in Canvas and forgo using it in Bb our last semester....Spring 2018 Canvas exclusive campus!!
Thank you for your input.
How exciting!! I would greatly appreciate any assistance. Thank you for sharing. I will touch base with my team and see when we can connect.
It looks like your questions have generally be answered. A couple of additional notes in case it is helpful:
