Digital studies

How do you participate in digital live lessons?

The teacher will set up the teaching in each subject and will have different expectations on how you participate, including considering whether you have a camera and/or a microphone. Some people find it uncomfortable to be on video during lessons. Occasionally the teaching will be better by having your camera on. We therefore hope that as many people as possible want to participate - with a camera if necessary.

It is optional for students to be on camera, microphone and chat. See more about privacy in Zoom (currently only in Norwegian).

Change background when using camera

It is possible to change the background in both Zoom and Microsoft Teams video calls.

Facilitation for students who are unable to attend live lessons

Unfortunately, we cannot adapt lessons for those of you who cannot attend live lessons. Live lessons often replace group lessons and seminar where the interaction between teacher and students is essential.
