Working from Home

After finishing the third quartile from home, we all have experienced online studying. And I am sure you have video called your peers, listened to lectures via canvas conferences and maybe even made a take-home exam.

While I was still a candidate-board member, we (myself and the rest of the then candidate-board) thought of the idea to increase the presence of study support from our association to our members.

With this idea we started and after gathering information about such evenings from other study associations we setup our first study evening in the eighth week of the first quartile. ...
