Abstract: To facilitate for change is challenging. In this project one went from teacher-centred face-to-face teaching to a student-centred online way of teaching using a specific teaching and learning strategy and software and tools free of use for students and teachers at Nord University. The teachers participating in the project were novice to tools and strategy, but experienced teachers. One of the challenges was a lack of common understanding of terms used in strategic documents given from government. This brief paper highlights the effort needed to make it possible for non-technical oriented teachers to change their teaching and the need of support systems that can help them by facilitating a change from teacher-centered on-site teaching to student-centred online teaching.
