From 2008 to 2011 the Flex project at Umeå University funded a number of development projects with a focus on online/flexible courses. In order to continue to promote pedagogical development at Umeå University the University Board decided to perpetuate these funds and to include all forms of course delivery. The funds are managed and distributed by the Centre for Educational Development (UPL) at Umeå University, and will be used for projects whose aim is to promote the development of creative and flexible approaches to learning and learning environments at Umeå University.
