A large number of Mid Sweden University’s students are distance students and we are one of the largest providers of distance education in the country.
The opening of “Origo – a centre for learning” was a significant step to highlight the importance of the distance students.
Origo was to be a meeting place for distance students. Among other things, it would offer a library, IT support and courses in study techniques and information retrieval. Örnsköldsvik was the first centre and the idea was to establish Origo on all campuses. Over the years, the organization has changed somewhat and Origo has been incorporated into the rest of the university’s student resource services.
