What is EpN?

EpN (Online Course Planner) is a planning tool used to create and edit courses. The course information is obtained from FS (Felles studentsystem) for editing in the EpN application. After the courses has gone through a quality assurance process, the courses will be returned to FS again.

The courses must be quality assured in the tool through various stages. The stage you have access to is determined by your role in the application: 

  • Fagperson (S0 og S1)
  • Kvalitetssikrer (S2)
  • Godkjenner (S3)
  • FS-klarerer (S4)

Course codes

When creating new courses, any proposals for course codes should be based on previous code structures.

The course code is a key that is part of many relationships in several computer systems. In order to maintain a code system that is intended to be robust over time, there must be good reasons for changing an established course code.
