Sofia leerplatform

Dear Sofia user,

With a question, comment or suggestion you are always welcome at our helpdesk.

Fill out the contact form below and we'll get in touch with you as soon as possible.

Knowledge base

You may already find answers to your question or problem in our knowledge base or online manual. Be sure to take a look there!

  • You go to the manual by clicking on the question mark in the Sofia menu at the bottom left. At the moment the manual is only available in Dutch.
  • In the manual there is information for authors to create courses and teachers to integrate courses in their lessons.
  • For students there is a handy FAQ with answers to the most frequently asked questions on the helpdesk.

If you have not found the answer in the manual, ask your question below.

Attach screenshot

Sometimes a picture says more than a few digital lines. Take a screenshot and show us what’s wrong. We can analyse your problem better when you add a screenshot.

We accept the following file types: pdf, jpg, jpeg, png, gif or bmp.

How do I take my screenshot?

Minimal system requirements

Since Sofia is a smooth-running e-learning platform, you don’t need extreme horsepower to use it. Nevertheless, you better leave your Commodore 64 where it is.

Your browser must have javascript enabled to be able to use Sofia. In general, we strongly advise to use the latest browser-version of Chrome, Firefox or Safari for Mac. However, here are a few minimal system requirements:

Sofia supports the following browsers:

  • Microsoft Edge
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Google Chrome
  • Safari 10.x for MacOS.

Sofia supports these browsers only on these operating systems:

  • Windows 10
  • Windows 8.1
  • Windows 7
  • MacOS 10.9, 10.10, 10.11 and 10.12.X

The browser version Sofia supports depends on the Sofia release date. When a new version of Sofia is released we support the latest current version of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari for MacOS (these browsers usually automatically update whenever a newer available version is detected). Since Januari 1, 2019 Sofia does not support the browser Internet Explorer anymore.

Latest Sofia release date: September, 2020


Sofia is designed for limited use on tablets and smartphones only. Authors will have the best user experience on PC’s or laptops when creating courses. We discourage authoring courses on tablets or smartphones. Why fry a black angus steak on a hot brick if you have a perfectly decent grill?

Not 180° Einstein, that kind of leaves you where you left off. A 90° twist does the trick.
