Your teaching during the pandemic
The Corona situation in Vaasa has improved and the students’ keys will work again as of Monday 29.3.2021. Working remotely is still recommended and the remote studies continue.
Working remotely continues in Helsinki, and the buildings will remain closed for students. If the law on temporarily restricting the freedom of movement enters into force, those who need to work on site at Hanken can ask for a certificate from their manager.
Always wear a face mask when you visit Hanken’s premises!
Examinarium is used restrictively for exams in Open university entrance courses (snabbled) and for the basic courses in economic sciences that are planned as Exam exams (next exams in May). The maturity tests are arranged in Moodle unless the examiner in exceptional cases chooses to arrange Teams-supervised tests.
Ideas and instructions for distance teaching and examination available on Teaching Lab's page
Teaching in Teams
Teaching can be conducted online using Teams. You can create a team for your course and invite the students to the team by sharing the team code. In your team environment you can share material, divide students into groups and deliver your online lectures (book the meetings in the Teams calendar or use Meet now). You can record your lectures and share them with your students in Onedrive/Microsoft stream. Here you'll find more Teams instructions and how to share your recordings in Microsoft Stream with students in your course.
Please keep to the schedule already reserved in Schema for online lectures, so that unnecessary clashes do not occur. Strive to keep your online lectures shorter than 90 minutes at a time.
We recommend that you use a headset (headphones and microphone). If you do not have headset of your own, you can get one from the reception.
Recording with Ubicast
You can also record lectures in advanced with Ubicast on your own computer and in some class rooms. Instructions available here.
Teaching material for self-studies
If adequate self-study material is available (video material, literature, etc.), the teacher can replace class-based teaching with self-studies. Read Library’s services during the pandemic Several publishers now offer multi-licenses on electronic books.
More information about access to data bases in Quantum is available on the Library's info site (link above).
In order to support the examiners' choices and decisions regarding exam forms at a distance, the Education Council 7.4.2020 approved the following:
Alternative exam forms are tests and quizzes in Moodle, hand-in assignments / tests, reflection diaries, presentation or reflection videos, oral exams or presentations in Teams, peer review, etc. Tests can be time limited, randomized, checked for plagiarism and corrected automatically in Moodle. Read more about Exams in Moodle. Moodle workshops are also offered.
The stress on the Moodle server is increasing especially in the end of the teaching period. Read more about Moodles capacity and rekommendations
=> To be able to coordinate the exams for all teacher, please notify Studies and Admission of your proposed exam time for your course and the exam forms you are going to use (mail firstname.lastname@example.org).

Exams in the Examinarium can be booked at 8, 11 or 14. When the front doors are locked due to the pandemic situation, the caretakers let in students at 7.50 (only in Helsinki), 10.50 and 13.50. Rector can in special cases decide on special arrangements - contact email@example.com if you have questions
Equal treatment of students should apply also in such circumstances. Equal treatment means that all students who are in the same situation should have the same opportunities, but it does not necessarily mean that all students on the course must have the same assessment methods.
The students are still responsible for not cheating, although we cannot control it in the same way as at an exam – it also applies to being the one who they claim to be, not to give out their passwords and to follow instructions on what is individual tasks and what is done in groups.
Supervision of thesis
It is also important to secure the supervision of thesis. Supervision via Teams Calls is a way to do this, where either the student or the teacher calls the other via Teams during the agreed time. A meeting can also be pre-booked in Outlook or Team Calendar.
Here are video instructions for Teams
The Teams application also makes it possible to conduct a doctoral defence online. The doctoral defence can be postponed if the doctoral candidate so wishes.
