During the last decade there has been a tremendous development and interest in E-learning in schools. E-learning is an innovative approach which, in addition to complementing the traditional learning system, provides new avenues to support kids with disabilities who might not efficiently absorb information de-livered to them through traditional education programs. In this research we iden-tify challenges that students with disabilities face in different high schools in Ko-sovo and propose recommendations to minimize these issues. Problems were re-ported by two independent groups, students and teachers. They both, via ques-tionnaires, indicated their problems related to the accessibility of websites, ac-cessibility of digital audio and video, inflexible time limits built into online ex-ams, PowerPoint presentation during lectures, course materials in PDF, and the lack of needed adaptive technologies. It is important to note that this is an explor-atory, descriptive study that is not based on any theoretical approach. Its main objective is to compare the views of the two groups, to suggest hypotheses for future investigations, and to propose recommendations based on available infor-mation.
