Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of the study is to investigate if the teachers at the NTI high school in Luleå, Sweden experience any difficulties with the parallel use of two IT administrative platforms, more specifically SchoolSoft and Google Apps. The investigation consists of data collection through an online questionnaire and four complementary interviews to receive a general and more elaborate opinion on the matter. The findings illustrate that a majority of the teachers, to some extent, experience some sort of difficulties regarding the use of the two platforms. The results are cross-examined to reveal that the most common difficulty is that teachers experience themselves to be performing double work since they are repeating the same procedure in both platforms. Two solutions are suggested, one long term and one short term. The long term is to establish a taskforce that continuously work with usage development. This involves everything from staff education on how to use the two platforms to further research on how to use the two platforms most efficiently. The second suggested solution is short term and involves establishing basic guide lines in order to help teachers who are in need of basic structural system use.
