Course Aim

The student will be able to design and develop services for the ALM sector, or similar services concerning digital repositories in other sectors, based on information systems development, long-term perspectives and organisational concern.

  After the course the student will be able to:

  1. Independently choose an organzation.
  2. Analyze the organization’s present situation, problems and interests.
  3. Initiate a project, to bring forward a solution.
  4. Select solutions and argue for that solution.
  5. Plan and report the progress of the project work.
  6. Present the solution oral and in written form to the customer, user or other stakeholders.
  7. Examine and judge the work concerning both the process and the outcome.
  8. After the project ends, critically and objectively judge your achievements on how the process worked and if you met the goals. 
  9. Follow a project model in a systematic and organized way.


Based on knowledge acquired earlier in the study programme, and by identifying knowledge gaps and gathering information to fill these gaps, the student defines aproject where the student identifies problems and possibilities for e-services in a particular organisational context, and suggest solutions to defined problems. The results are presented both orally and in a written report, and as a demonstrator if appropriate.


During the course the students create study groups to discuss their work with other students. A company or organization where the project can be carried out must be contacted. 

Teaching is in English and on Internet for distance students or at campus for the students living here. IT support: Learning management system (Fronter), video conference system, e-mail and phone.
