Exactly. My suggestion would grant more control over what may be run on a
computer, and would keep the keys of from all the computers. However, it is
not a perfect fix - while it would likely defeat keyloggers on any of the
computers, I can think of a few ways that an attacker who knows what you use to
access your account to steal and use your key(s).

I am not familiar with the software used in Norway by universities. I am only
familiar with Blackboard, which is used by many universities in the USA, and I
would not trust it for transmitting or receiving personal or confidential material.
