Locate the Exam in Learn

The exam is conducted in the learning management system used by Dalarna University that is called “Learn”. An exam may require you either to upload one or more files into Learn or to complete a test in Learn by answering questions there directly. Make sure you know ahead of time how to upload files and how to do a test in Learn. 

If you are required to take an exam on paper (your course coordinator will inform you about this), you can either scan the handwritten text using an app or you can take a photo of it. The app converts the image(s) into a PDF document. You can submit your exam as a PDF directly into Learn using your phone, or you can transfer the PDF to your computer and submit it into Learn that way. If you need to take a photo or to scan a handwritten text, you will receive an additional 30 minutes on top of the time allocated for the exam itself. The examination invigilator needs to watch you as you take a photo or scan your completed exam.

Before the exam, you can receive help with how to upload and write a test in Learn. For help, contact well in advance of your exam.
