MOSO is a platform that encompasses the entire practical training process, from preparation, through the practical phase, observation and supervision, all in one system. The implementation is inspired by social media models, where all parties can interact before, during and after the practical training session. MOSO utilizes the students’ and staffs’ existing devices so there is no need for additional hardware and time consuming installations.

The technology creates better correlation between practice periods and supervision. This way, practice location and campus are connected closer together. With MOSO – students, tutors and professors work on a common platform that helps to raise the quality of student practice periods.

The Workflow
  • Planning
  • Feedback on plans
  • Teaching/   Activity
  • Observation
  • Supervision



MOSO is developed based on research at The University of Agder and UiT The Arctic University of Norway. The research revolves around the use of technology in learning and training situations, where feedback and guidance are the essential factors.

Key findings

  1. More valid, abundant observations
  2. Greater engagement and concentration
  3. More honest and clear feedback
  4. More extensive sharing of observations and views
  5. Improved coherence and continuity
  6. Improved structure and simplification
  7. Improved preparations for supervision
  8. More reflection and greater learning outcome
