Due to the prevailing situation with covid-19, IST is now opening up the digital learning service Schoolido for Sweden's schools during the spring term. The service is easy to get started with, and facilitates teaching both at school and at a distance. To help teachers get started with the tool faster, we also offer free webinars.

Schoolido is a learning platform from IST, which offers more opportunities for learning, at school or at a distance. The tool is user-friendly and easy to get started with, and during the spring term we will give Sweden's schools free access to the basic functions of the platform. In order for teachers to get started with the tool faster, we also offer a free webinar. Read more about our webinars (in Swedish) for Schoolido here.
