Studying from Home

We have put together some tips and useful information that you as a student can use when you study from home.

Learn

You can find all the information about your courses in Learn, which is Dalarna University’s learning management system. You can also submit your assignments and access different forums where you, your teachers and fellow students have discussions, ask questions and receive answers.

Zoom: Video Meetings

Zoom is a digital tool you can use to take part in online meetings. Both staff and students can access and use Zoom. In Zoom, you can share your whiteboard and computer screen, and use other programmes – for example, PowerPoint. If you have problems starting a Zoom meeting, turn off your camera as this might help.

Programmes and Student Licences

Dalarna University has licences to software (programmes) that students can install on their computers for study purposes.

Study Tools

Online Examinations

Examination formats differ from course to course. You can find what format will be used in your particular course(s) in your course room in Learn. 

Technical Equipment 

You need to organise your own technical equipment for your web-based studies. In the list below, you can see the equipment we recommend. To be able to participate fully in your online courses, our recommendation is that you use a computer. However, if you do not have a computer, you are able to use a mobile phone, although this is not something we recommend. To test your technical equipment, and to receive advice and support, please contact us at our Support Café (Zoom) or support@du.se.
