Courses and training

FIN-CLARIN offers several methodological courses online every year. The courses are designed especially for graduate and postgraduate students in Humanities, Social Sciences and Behavioural Sciences who use research materials or corpora containing text or speech.

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 networks. (Temporary user accounts are available for course participation upon timely request from the teacher.)
