Underway with plans and assessment features
Both Alta and Sandfallet schools began using Haldor in the autumn of 2020, and in no time at all teachers and students started using many of the features.
“Today, we use the features to create work plans, assignments and assessments, as well as for reserving meetings, individual monitoring of students and notifications for parent teacher meetings,” says Hansen. He adds that one of the really major benefits of Haldor is that you can add the features you need as and when the need arises.
“Teachers, students and school management all use Haldor extensively, in fact every day, and even though we have not used all the features yet, I can visualise that we will be introducing more features as time goes by.”
Feel seen and heard by Haldor
For Hansen and indeed the municipality as a whole, it was very important to be able to keep Microsoft Teams, partly because the tool holds a strong position in the business community. The fact that the students work with Teams on a daily basis therefore gives them an advantage when they eventually start working.
“It was also an advantage that most people were already very familiar with Teams. This made it much easier to get up and running with Haldor,” says Hansen.
The experienced teacher also highlights the collaboration with Haldor and says that their interaction has been excellent from the get go.
“The dialogue has been fantastic. The team at Haldor are really service-oriented, easy to reach and responsive to our feedback. We feel that we are taken seriously and we have undergone high quality and thorough training via Teams.”
