Digital Assessment: current and future developments across Europe
The webinar run jointly between Jisc and EUNIS took place on 25th April 2017. It covered national initiatives in Norway and the Netherlands and the experiences of the University of Bergen (using Canvas for formative assessment and Inspera for digital exams).
