Even when the examination time has lapsed, should this never be done.

    Question: I want the digital examination environment / student view to be in English for my students. How can I do this?

    Answer: Students will see an icon by which they can change their language preference, both when logging in to Remindo as well as in the examination environment / student view. This is also mentioned in the Student instruction Remindo.

    As a teacher, all you might need to do is notify the students of this icon. An example of the icon can be seen in the screenshot.
