Further Information



There was a need for new methods of language learning in Norway. The possibilities that the ICT offered for training purposes were found as a solution to respond to this need.


To create online language learning modules in Norwegian for the use of immigrants in Norway.
To answer to the language training needs of the working life and trade unions.
To create training modules that are easy to further develop and to integrate to other contexts.


MigraNorsk is an online multimedia-based instructional program that teaches both language and social science topics for immigrants to Norway. The target language is Norwegian. The program combines e-learning and traditional classroom teaching, which makes for a high degree of differentiation and student influence on content and progression.


Online learning materials have been developed for many purposes. The modules are easy to further develop and to integrate into the program. Companies, trade unions or other players can develop the modules that are related to their field and are linked to the general language course.
