Web-Based Studies

We have put together some useful information and tips that will help you with your web-based studies - everything from the technical equipment you will need to the contact details to our help and support services.

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 or support@du.se.

Digital Tools

In the list below, you can see what digital tools we recommend you use.

Examination Formats

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. Now that all teaching is web-based, the greatest change will be to campus-based examinations. Here you can find information about how campus-based examinations will be conducted online.


University Library by Distance

The University Library is open, and you can access most of its services from your home. Do you need help with information retrieval or referencing? Or do you need to borrow library books?

The University Library on Campus

The libraries on Campus Falun and Campus Borlänge are open so that students have a place for individual study in well-ventilated areas with internet connection and access to computers. Groups are not permitted to meet inside Dalarna University buildings. Please note that changes may be made to services and opening hours.
