Digital examination in Canvas

Your teacher can use Canvas to create quizzes, home exams, group assignments and more. They can also choose to examine you and the course's learning objectives by allowing you to film yourself or something you do on your screen using the Studio tool.

Access to digital course rooms (Canvas) before you are registered

The fact that you as a student get access to a digital course room (for example in Canvas) does not mean either that you are authorized to take the course, that you have been promised to take the course or that you are registered on the course.

It is only when you are eligible or have been offered a place on courses with limited places that you can register for the course in Ladok and only then may you participate in the course's activities and examinations. It is your own responsibility to register for the course as soon as possible.
