MOOCAHUSET is involved with the HelDig2020 project with colleagues at the Institute of Nursing Education at OsloMet as well as with the publishing house Gyldendal Akademisk. Together we are developing three textbooks,- one of them being on health technology.
As a local spinoff we will develop a digital textbook (“læreverk”) for Bokskapet for the MD level for the Health Sciences. This will be a generic and multi-linguistic course with English as the base working language. It will target audiences at Oslo Met, nationally and abroad.

The main editor will be Professor and Head of Department Kaare-Mange Nielsen with several co-editors.
