MyCourses is the learning environment for Aalto University courses. With MyCourses, teachers can share course material, resources and other content. A teacher can set up and grade assignments, quizzes and workshops. MyCourses also provides tools for collaboration and interaction with students.
Digital services for teaching
Aalto University offers a variety of services that make teaching and learning motivating and rewarding. Much effort is put in storing and safeguarding all the necessary study-related information and data.
The Teacher Services team supports teaching and academic guidance, the use of Aalto's student information management systems, and together with Aalto ITS maintains, for example, the student registers Oodi and SISU, the learning platform MyCourses, and the electronic assessment service EXAM.
Digitalisation brings new inspiring opportunities enabling flexible and diverse learning, learning support and assessment. Electronic services allow you to stay in touch regardless of time and place. One can, say, recall a lecture from a video and be assured that course and study material is always accessible wherever one may go.
We specialise in supporting and guiding the teaching staff in pedagogical and academic matters, in the selection of learning technology, in the use of Aalto's study information systems, and in the development of teaching and digital services supporting teaching and learning. We take care of maintaining digital solutions in collaboration with IT services.
Our services include support for and maintenance of the learning platform MyCourses, the student registers Oodi and SISU, the media service Panopto, the e-examination service EXAM and the appointment service VIHTA.
