Why digital exam projects fail

 

Why digital exam projects fail (and will continue to fail unless strategy change)

There are many examples of failing digital transformation projects in Higher Education. Unfortunately, very few leaders are open and honest about them.

  • Why did you search for a digital examination tool?

We experienced a need to digitize mainly because we have been a 1:1 school for a long time.

Sammanfattning av 2020

2020 lider mot sitt slut och om vi ska försöka oss på en sammanfattning så kan vi minst sagt säga att det varit ett annorlunda år.
