Three universities, University of Bergen, University of Oslo, and University of Agder, formed a consortium to collaboratively procure a commercial solution in 2014. Inspera offered the best solution at the tender, measured by its capacity to support development that was relevant and important for the sector and the objectives of this project.
'Our experience with the introduction of digital examinations has been a success. This may be because it was neither a so-called top-down nor bottom-up process, but the result of the simultaneous coming together of wishes from various partners,' says section manager Anne-Lise Lande, UiO.
Throughout, the project has involved close communication with the faculties, which is also being maintained now that the project has moved into its operational phase. The university management has not drafted specific policies for required adoption rates, and the faculty deans have taken the role of enthusiastic promoters.
It was important to manage user expectations of the system during the course of its functionality development. Therefore, Inspera was involved in the delivery of the communications plan, so that the information flow among stakeholders was managed effectively.
