Visit your department

UPL can visit your department to introduce and inform about the e-learning systems. Your department can also book a workshop based on your needs in, for example, Cambro, Moodle, Zoom or UmU Play. The only requirement is that you are five persons or more attending. The workshop can be held in Swedish or English.

At the page Manual you will find manuals and guides for the e-learning systems. Some manuals are only available in Swedish. Write what you want to know more about in the search field.
