Accessibility statement

Last modified: February 2021

Aalto University's FITech 101 platform and its courses are subject to the EU's accessibility directive, the aim of which is to ensure equality in a digitalised society and set uniform requirements for accessibility.

The platform was launched on May 2020. The site's current accessibility standard is WCAG 2.1, level AA. The requirements of the Directive have been taken into account in the development of the website, and the work continues. The information in this statement is based on self-asessment and automated web accessibility tests.

Aalto University FITech 101 team is committed to observing accessibility standards. The following measures are implemented in order to achieve this goal:

  • accessibility is part of our mission statement,
  • accessibility has been taken into account in the university practices,
  • a member of staff has been appointed to be responsible for accessibility at the university.

Aalto University's FITech 101 team's objective is to maintain a website that is technically accessible and understandable in terms of its contents and that is clear and easy to use for all types of users.

The FITech 101 platform mainly meets the requirements for accessibility. The website requires further improvements, however, in the following areas:

  • video subtitles
  • image descriptions and alt texts
  • interactive content and animations
  • online programming environment(s)

In addition, courses on the platform may have non-platform specific issues. If you notice any deficiencies regarding the accessibility of the site, you can provide feedback to: Arto Hellas (firstname.lastname@aalto.fi)

We will respond to your feedback within two weeks, at the latest.

We are actively working to address the accessibility issues that have been identified.
