Accessibility in teaching

To enable all students to benefit from teaching: ILIAS offers several self-study modules to help you acquire skills in the area of digital accessibility. In the modules, you will learn important ground rules for the accessibility of teaching and study materials, as well as self-tests and exercises. The main focus lies on preparing accessible materials such as PDFs or scans using Office programmes in particular. The importance and preparation of alternative texts (descriptions of images for people with visual impairments) is also covered.
