The Danish government continues its mission to strengthen the country’s elementary and middle schools. In 2014 80 million DKK has been allocated for the purpose of purchasing interactive digital learning tools and content. This is all part of Denmark’s extensive committment to digital learning resources and to "Den Nye Folkeskole". In total, the scope of the initiative amounts to no less than 500 million DKK over a period of 5 years.
During the holidays Creaza has upgraded its entire back-end solution in order to improve performance and user experience. This has been done to strengthen our solution before the launch of he brand new version of Creaza, which is to be released late February 2014. We will return with more information about the new Creaza soon.
