2.4.1 Skip Blocks - Level A

Navigation: the order and nesting of the h1, h2, h3 and h4 elements should be improved to facilitate navigation.

Technical implementation

The Digma e-learning environment is based on the open source Moodle platform. Moodle is designed to provide all people with the same functionality and the same information. This means that regardless of personal limitations, assistive software, screen
size, or different input devices (such as a mouse, keyboard, or touch screen), there should be no barriers to use the online service.

The site is designed to be compatible with the following browsers:

  • Edge
  • Firefox
