Absalon is the online course platform at the University of Copenhagen. Each time a course runs, an online course room is set up in Absalon and the relevant teachers and students are automatically enrolled. As a teacher you can use the course room to share learning materials with your students and communicate with them. You can also use more advanced features like quizzes, assignments, plagiarism control, peer feedback and more.
Staff and students can access Absalon through KUnet.
