The latter area, use of research data, the Minister of Education explains in the following way: “This simply concerns to share knowledge from research and best practice, like students at different institutions not should have to search information again if it is available at another institution, but to be able to make use of knowledge and experience in the whole field nationally and internationally.” Make use of the opportunities and share learning resources, and add more flexibility in the learning process is three of the main points in the strategy. Besides a general improvement of digital literacy. Source: Press Release Government of Norway
