The objective of the online studies is to offer all the students alternative modes of study. The implementation of online courses is also bound to a calendar, but the online courses permit at least partial flexibility of time and location.

Some graduate programmes are organised as part-time studies that involve more online learning than full-time studies. Part-time studies combine online work, independent and group work and classroom learning. You can study while working since the classroom periods are held only on a few days a month, depending on the programme.

MOOCs as part of PLP plans for students

You can choose MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) courses for your study path. You can allocate them to your PLP, for example, as:

  • elective studies
  • partial completions of JAMK’s courses
  • optional vocational studies

You will act independently in the selection of MOOC courses and be responsible for the progression of studies and any possible costs.

The MOOC courses need to support achieving the learning objectives of your degree in order for them to award credits as part of your PLP. JAMK is not responsible for arranging the MOOC courses or their quality, so before completing such courses you need to discuss them with the person in charge of the said studies or the career tutor. Ask your teacher about any MOOC courses recommended by the degree programme.

You can search for MOOC courses independently, for example, at the following locations:
