Upgrading Absalon

As you may have heard the inside of Absalon will be replaced with a new platform this summer. From there on the engine of Absalon will be Canvas. The platform seems very promising with a strong focus on feedback and collaboration - for example by making peer feedback a breeze. It also integrates well with external learning tools as well as social media. Read the news article from KUnet here. There will soon come more information about the roll-out plans at SCIENCE.
