About course supports the student with information to choose course, to prepare and plan for taking the course and to complete the course. About course also supports the teacher with tools to inform the students with course information as course memos and course analysis.

New tool to create and publish course memos

From Thursday 26th of November a new tool is available to create and publish course memos before start of the course offering. Several smart features make it easier to compose the contents and to publish a course memo that helps the students to prepare and plan for taking the course.

The student needs information to prepare and plan for taking the course before and during the course offering. The new tool helps you as a teacher to create and publish a course memo for that purpose. The tool automatically fetches correct information from the course syllabus and contact information. The course memo is based on a quality assured KTH course memo template and the tool helps you with definitions and guidance on how to compose your contents. With one click the course memo is published on the official course information site “About course” in the Course and programme directory with a format that complies with the requirements for digital accessibility.
