Listed in the Digital Humanities Course Registry

Students from all Finnish universities can participate for free. If space allows, participants can also be accepted from universities outside Finland. The courses are offered via the Moodle learning environment of the University of Helsinki. It is possible to log in directly with the user credentials of any member organization of the HAKA and eduGAIN federations. Please try to log in to Moodle well in advance. If you discover that you have no access, temporary user accounts are available for course participation upon timely request from the teacher.
