Program webs for communication within programs

Every education program at KTH has a program website where you, as an education administrator or Program Directors, can inform and communicate with the students.

On the Program web, students and staff can share information, discuss and ask questions about the program.


The new programme rooms in Canvas are launched on August 14

During the spring, a project to introduce program rooms in Canvas has been underway. During Monday (14/8) the programme rooms in Canvas are in place. They have thus replaced the program webs. Read more the news post "Programme rooms in Canvas are launched on 14 August" .

You find the "Program" function in the personal menu

You will find your program websites under "Programs" in the Personal Menu. You can search for the program in the Course and programme directory  if you are missing a program. You will find a link to the program website under the education plan.

Program web functions

The features available are explained here:

News feed

In this feed, the latest posts, comments, and edits are displayed. Those with the most recent activity come first. You can also write your posts from here.


The submitted events into the TimeEdit schedule system, "Calendar", are automatically displayed. Administrators can also create calendar events directly on the Program web.

Program web visibility levels

On the program web, pages and posts have four visibility levels:

  • The whole world (these pages appear in external search engines, e.g. Google searches).
  • All logged-in users (people who have a KTH account*).
  • Students and administrators.
  • Administrators.

Note: Even on Program webs, comments are automatically given the same visibility as the page, calendar event, or post to which they belong. When you write a comment, you can see at the bottom of the border the visibility of the post/page you are commenting on.

*Clarification: Users who have only received a local account in Canvas cannot log in to and are not included in the visibility described above.

Get started with the Program web

The program web is created automatically. You can immediately start using the Program web (writing posts, creating calendar events, etc.). Students registered on the program automatically receive a subscription to the Program web. This means that the students will be notified of information posted on the program page, provided that they have not turned off notifications.

Here are some things that might be good to think about before you get started:

Set up your profile

Accept the terms of use, upload a picture of yourself, write a short presentation and tell us what you are working with. You’ll find your profile through the Personal menu .

Add Administrators

"Administrators" have higher rights to update the Program web than regular users, for example, create calendar events and links.

If you want to become an administrator on the program website (if you are a study advisor, program administrator, master's coordinator, teacher, program manager) contact someone who is already an administrator in the first place and ask them to add you. If there are no administrators, send e-mail to .

Make a description

Write a short descriptive text summarizing how the Program web will be used during the program by teachers and students. It can serve as text on the home page. You can find the "Create description" link on the Program web on the Overview page. Example of a start page on the Program web.

Link in important content

Some links are created automatically, for example links to the education plan and the Student Web. You can add links to a page if you want to link to any other program-specific information that is useful for the students. Remember that information on the program websites must apply to the program. For other information, students are referred to the Student Web.


If you want to know more or discuss how the Program webs can be used at your school, contact .

​ During HT 2022, a needs collection and  will be carried out.
