OUR MISSION

WE MAKE DIGITAL LEARNING POSSIBLE FOR EVERYONE!

Our vision is that digital learning should be possible for everyone. To succeed with this, we will offer the most efficient, smartest way to access and use digital resources in the classroom. Skolon was first launched at Stockholm’s SETT fair in 2015. Today, we are one of Scandinavia’s fastest growing EdTech companies, with a presence in several markets and continued high growth.

Our working methods feature creativity, energy and joy – we are proud of the educational developments we have contributed to in just a short time, but we are also aware that the greatest opportunities are still ahead of us!

Our journey

Follow our journey, from our initial idea of simpler, more enjoyable digital learning for everyone to the present day:

2015

2015/2016: Skolon is launched at Stockholm’s SETT fair

In 2015, Sweden’s largest event for digital education – the SETT fair – sees the official launch of our Swedish-language platform after several years of development. There is a great deal of interest from the start, and during the following year thousands of schools activate Skolon and some of Sweden’s top content providers make their materials available in our library.

2017

2017/2018: New functions, more users and the first step towards ...

Skolon launches several new functions for more secure, simpler digital learning, and partnerships are formed with several of the Nordic region’s leading publishers. A number of Sweden’s biggest schools also decide to activate Skolon. Our international journey starts in 2018 when Skolon is established in Norway and a partnership with Microsoft begins.

2019

2019: One of Sweden’s fastest growing EdTech companies

Several leading schools of all sizes throughout Sweden and Norway activate Skolon. There are now more than 1,500 tools in Skolon’s library.

2020

2020: The pandemic and an open platform for access to resources

The world is struck by a pandemic, resulting in school closures and distance learning. Skolon – together with its partners – opens up its platform, offering free access to digital tools and resources for hundreds of thousands of students and teachers. Several new functions are also launched, enhancing our educational and support services to meet the new needs and challenges that schools suddenly face.

2021

2021: One of Scandinavia’s fastest growing EdTech companies

Skolon reaches a milestone of half a million users, with more than 3,500 digital tools in its library. A broad launch of the Skolon Store gives easier, smoother sourcing and distribution of digital tools, updated apps for iOS, and smart browser extensions for Chrome and Edge.
