Using Dugga for instructors of the Self-Healing Therapist Program – YogaMana Östermalm, Stockholm
“YogaMana Östermalm in Stockholm uses Dugga as an exam program in our new Self-Healing Therapist Program. It is a unique education where researchers, doctors, nutritionists and yoga therapists collaboratively train the participants in self-healing and functional medicine on site and online. Dugga has been extremely easy for us to start using. It has been a trouble-free process to create different exciting variants of test questions and where most of the questions have also been set in auto-correct mode. Minimal hand-ons has led to effective correction/grading for us educators which has saved us a lot of work time that we instead can spend on other tasks.
We also want to give a big praise to Dugga’s incredibly nice and helpful customer service who were able to quickly answer our questions and guide us. We are very satisfied with Dugga and will be more than happy to continue using the platform.”

“Introducing Dugga to our schools has meant that we have been given a practical tool to use for all types of assessment. It has also challenged traditional ways of looking at exams and thereby become an incentive for in-depth discussions and discussions about educational practices.
In this respect, the use of Dugga has contributed especially to the favored digitization of assessment in upper secondary education and provided increased flexibility for adult education.
Dugga has also, with commitment, listened to our voices and discussions about the implementation and the development of digital assessment with always having the good of students in mind.”
Anneli Schwartz, Head of Culture and Education
Municipality of Jönköping, Sweden
“The biggest benefit we see with Dugga as a digital assessment system is all the time that every teacher saves on correcting and grading. Even when correcting manually in Dugga, every teacher saves time for each exam event. Being able to correct many different question types completely automatically is fantastic!
Another big advantage of Dugga is that each teacher saves about 3-5 hours a week with Dugga which amounts to 78 000-130 000 hours saved per year for the school. Any teacher can manage to use the solution after a quick 60 minutes introduction.”
Lars Ulvemo, IT-educator
“We are pleased to participate in the digitisation of the education system together with Dugga. Like Microsoft, Dugga offers smart, digital solutions that create new opportunities for students and teachers from schools and universities around the world. The new integration between Dugga and Microsoft Office 365 takes digitized forms of knowledge assessment a step further.”
“In a situation where secondary schools and universities very quickly need to adapt to a new way of teaching, it is important that follow-up is done in a smooth way; and therefore the new app in Teams that Dugga has developed is very valuable, ”
