A quick guide to our IT systems

Welcome to the University of Skövde! This is a short list for you to get started with the IT systems at the University.

 You need to have an active account in order to be able to register for classes, access course material, download free software et cetera. You can activate your account in either of these ways:

Course sites

All course material is available in the university's learning management system, Canvas. You can log into Canvas from your student portal (Studentportalen). Contact your instructor if you are not able to locate your course in Canvas. More information on Canvas and how to use it.
