Do you have a question about Brightspace or Microsoft Teams? Or setting up an exam via ANS? Do you want to know more about hybrid of blended learning? Or want to record a lecture or a knowledge clip?

The ICT & Education department of the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs supports staff in developing digital skills and setting up learning environments. Members of the Future Learning Office (FLO) are always willing to collaborate and get the best out of digital education. 

Who are we?

FLO hosts a team of three employees and two student assistants: Tamar van der Riet, Katarina Stankovic, Saskia Postema and the two student colleagues: Christa Anker and Arianto Sawirjo. We all have different working backgrounds and transferable knowledge in the field of ICT for Education. 

What are we here for?

Teachers and staff can contact FLO with questions related to ICT. Common questions that FLO handles are about setting up digital examinations (ANS), streaming or recording weblectures and using Brightspace.

FLO team supports the following:

Blended learning and Hybrid teaching

We speak of blended learning when ICT tools are used in education for all students. Hybrid teaching combines onsite and online teaching simultaneously. At the FGGA, both are common. The new Learn Anywhere system offers teachers the space to explore ergonomic and technological educational solutions. The Learn Anywhere rooms have additional screens, and teachers can see both students in the room and the students elsewhere at a glance. Additionally, all students can see the teacher and projections clearly.

ICT tools

Together with teachers, FLO team looks at the possibilities of ICT tools. We can recommend various tools that are available to Leiden University staff, such as Pitch2Peer, Presenterswall or FeedbackFruits, based on educational needs.

With many systems available, expert advice and a growing online network, we do our best to find the best practices for within FGGA.

Digital exams

At FGGA, the examination software ANS is in use. This is a user-friendly software that enables teachers to prepare digital exams in a simple way. We provide support, tips and tricks for setting up exams in Ans. In addition, we also support the use of Brightspace for administering digital quizzes.


FLO coordinates video livestreams and recordings in rooms with special Mediasite equipment. The video coordination available is four rooms: 1) Wijnhaven 2.01, 2) 2.02, 3) Anna van Bueren 2.21 and 4) Schouwburgstraat A0.06.
