Accessibility in teaching
Everyone benefits from accessible teaching, but for students with disabilities accessibility is a must. The minimum requirements for digital teaching at KTH are to meet the requirements of the law about accessible digital public service (the DOS law). Here, you as a teacher will find information and tips on how to adapt your material to be accessible.
The law about accessible digital public service
The requirements for digital accessibility mainly come from the law about accessible digital public service (the DOS law), which came into force on September 23, 2020. For you as a teacher, this means that your material must meet all relevant accessibility criteria. The law applies to public websites as well as intranets and non-public websites, such as KTH Social and Canvas.
