  • Proof-of-concept stuff regarding Abitti system
    • Abitti system is the first official public version of the digital exam system that will be employed in high school final exams nation-wide starting in autumn 2016.
    • Created an editor that enables teachers to use text formatting including tables as well as images and sounds in exam questions in the Abitti system even though the Abitti system does not officially support anything but plaintext for questions at the time of creation in February 2015.
  • Training sessions for high schools regarding the Abitti system
