Skolon reaches a milestone of half a million users, with more than 4,000 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.
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.
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.
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.
