The University of Gothenburg introduces new digital tools for students

News: Sep 21, 2018

At the moment, development and replacement of several digital tools are being carried out at the University of Gothenburg. The study documentation system Ladok will be upgraded to Ladok3, the learning management system GUL is going to be replaced by the new platform Canvas, the GU card will be developed with new features and the university will launch a brand new web.

Soon it's time to implement Ladok3

  • 23/9 - 4/11 The online degree application is closed
  • 24/10-4/11 Ladok is closed, to prepare for the implementation of Ladok3. Please prepare to do everything you need well before the closure
  • 5/11 Ladok3 opens for all users at the university

Ladok3 is a new webb based student record system and will be used at 37 higher education institutions across the nation, including the University of Gothenburg. It will also be used by The Swedish Board of Student Finance (CSN).

The goal is to improve the service for the University’s students at all levels, as well as to simplify the daily programme administration for University staff.

Digital degree certificates

All degree certificates at the University of Gothenburg will be issued in digital form from the 5th of November. A digital degree certificate cannot be obtained where a degree is already issued in paper format.

A digital degree certificate contains the same information as a degree certificate in paper format. You receive your degree certificate by e-mail and can send it to employers and other higher education institutions digitally. In this way, handling becomes faster, smoother and safer.

The transition to digital degree certificates is put into effect alongside the introduction of Ladok3. The decision to transition was taken by the Vice-Chancellor on 17 May 2018 and is in line with the University's Sustainable Development Policy.

We are changing our learning management system

The university is getting into position to start the implementation of Canvas, our new learning management platform [LMS]. The purpose of the project is to achieve higher usage of digital assets, encourage pedagogical development and support active learning.

Some of you may already be involved, since a pilot is ongoing, but most of you will be informed during 2019 when the big launch is planned to happen.
