OUAS e-learning environments

These instructions are meant for OUAS staff and students.

  • Moodle
  • Oiva
  • (NB. OUAS has discontinued using Optima)

1. Moodle

Moodle is one of OUAS e-learning environments. OUAS Moodle is available at https://moodle.oamk.fi/.

1.1 Login to OUAS Moodle
OUAS students and staff members log in to Moodle with their OUAS username and password. To external users, separate accounts are made when needed: then the username is the person’s full email address.

1.2 Course requests
In Moodle, each e-learning course has its own space. Employees may request a new course space from the OUAS helpdesk.

1.3 Adding the students to the course platform
If you are a manager of a course, you can add students to your course in Moodle by yourself. Alternatively, you can set a self-registration for your course, so the students can join the course themselves. Self-registration can either be open for all, or only for those who know the enrollment key. You may want to set the enrollment key yourself and then tell it to those students who you want to participate to the course.

1.4 Usernames for OUAS external users:
OUAS staff can order usernames to external users from the helpdesk. In this case, the following information is required:
1) The name of the person,
2) e-mail address
3) the organization (if any), and
4) information on how long the username is needed (= when the account can be removed)

1.5 Further information
In case you encounter problems with Moodle, please contact the OUAS helpdesk.


2. Oiva

Oiva is the OUAS students’ intranet. OUAS Communication Services maintain Oiva.

Both students and staff can access Oiva at https://oiva.oamk.fi/ using their OUAS usernames.

In Oiva,

  • students see all the courses they have registered into.
  • teachers see the courses they are responsible for.

For each course, the teachers mark if it (or a part of it) is held in Optima or in Moodle.

If for some reason your course does not appear in Oiva, please contact the helpdesk.
