Educational perspectives on the development of digital tools

Digital learning has a close collaboration with Support Services IT so that ivestigations and development work can be managed in a good way.
Modern agile way of working
The area of digital learning is developing rapidly at KTH and with it the needs of what our systems and services are expected to live up to. Therefore, we at The E-learning management object at KTH have an agile working method together with modern working practices and project tools. This is to make the best use of the needs and wishes that exist from those who work with the education at KTH.
