It’s time to put your creative hat on!

In this webinar, we will talk about how to design better assessments. What are the benefits of on-screen authoring, and how does that impact different stakeholders?

We will reflect on best practices of digital transformation of exam design with the group of experts who have years of both academic and hands-on experience with this process.
