Transfering course websites in Polopoly to KTH Social
New course websites at KTH
From the 1st of June 2012 KTH Social will be the primary platform for course websites at KTH. The change means that it will no longer be possible to create new course websites or new course rounds in Polopoly. This is one step towards creating a unified platform for course information and making it easier for students to access this information.
Your new social course website is already online!
Here are some of the advantages:
- It is easier to create and edit course material.
- Courses and course rounds are automatically created with information from KTH:s other IT-system, such as schedule, Kopps and LADOK - without you having to do anything.
- The students automatically get notified about activity on the course website via an automatic subscribtion and e-mail notification system.

Why are you closing down the course websites in Polopoly?
