We have a wide range of computer-based tools and programmes for which we provide both courses and daily support. Employees at Dalarna University are able to sign up for different courses inside the Staff pages, Du&Ja. At the start of every term, students are able to attend both courses and brief overviews of both Fronter and Connect.
Some tools may not have courses in-place or there can be a number of courses just in the beginning of every semester. Please contact the NGL Centre if you require a course in one of these.
Fronter is Dalarna University’s web-based learning platform and is used for administrative purposes for all our courses and programmes.
