Sweden opens academic borders with e-SENS!


Sweden has launched a new e-SENS cross-border e-Identification pilot, based in Stockholm university. The pilot allows foreign students to engage with Swedish courses at levels equivalent to students on campus, including secure submission of signed assignments, individual teacher feedback online and participation in exams. The system uses an enhanced version of Moodle, the best known online learning platform.

On February 1st, 2016, a group of third level students from Norway enrolled in Stockholm University’s Practical Project Management course. For the first time, students could register on this course online using a national ‘smart-card’ style e-ID, which verifies their identity and enables secure e-Signature.

The pilot has been launched within e-SENS Citizen Lifecycle domain.
