Welcome letter


Welcome to the course Web Intelligence with course code 2DV515. My name is Johan Hagelbäck and I am the course manager and lecturer on this course. You can reach me at johan.hagelback@lnu.se, at my office at Universitetskajen in Kalmar, or on Slack.

About the course

The course is mostly a self study course. There are 7 pre-recorded lectures (including the course introduction) you can watch at your own pace, and 4 assignments and a project you have to submit. There are deadlines for when the assignments and project shall be finished, but if you for some reasons miss any deadline there will be a resubmission opportunity in January. All deadlines and instructions for submissions can be found here.


The prerequisites for the course is 60 credits in computer science or equivalent. The course is open for applicants from other universities than Linnéuniversitetet. If you haven’t studied at Linnéuniversitetet, the admissions office have to check if your credits match the prerequisites for the course. The admissions office are often inclusive rather than exclusive, and if you have limited programming experience you must be prepared to work very hard to pass the course. The course requires advanced programming skills and is suitable for second or third year computer science/computer technology students.


Communication is mainly done with Slack. Create an account at coursepress.slack.com and join the channel #2DV515. Note that you must sign up with your lnu.se student email address.


If you need supervision you contact me on Slack and we’ll find a time slot. We can either meet physically at my office or online on Slack. Make sure you take advantage of the opportunity for supervision as the assignments and project are quite challenging.

New students

If you study at another university and have never studied at Linnéuniversitetet before, you need to go through a few steps:

  • Obtain a student account (go to lnu.se/utbildning/innan-du-borjar) in order to be able to log in to lnu.se/student which will give you access to information, see your credits, get access to internet and much more (if you haven’t studied at Linnéuniversitetet before).
  • Registration/confirmation that you will actually take the course that you have been accepted to.

Where do I start?

I suggest you get started by looking at the introduction and first lectures, and then start working on the first assignment. Deadline is two weeks from course start!

Don’t hesitate to contact me (preferrably on Slack) if you have any questions about the course.

Best Regards,
Johan Hagelbäck
Course Manager
