AYY’s Seal of Approval awarded to electronic examination

AYY’s Seal of Approval has been awarded to electronic examination, which enables exams to be taken at a freely chosen time or on the student’s own computer. This kind of flexible studying makes life easier for students who are working or have children, in particular.

On Thursday 11 April, Aalto University Student Union awarded the Seal of Approval seal and certificate at the Opintoasiainsitsit [Learning Services Sitsit] organised together with Aalto University.

The Seal of Approval award can be granted to Aalto University practices that the students find good. By granting the Seal of Approval award, AYY acknowledges practices that improve student wellbeing, the meaningfulness of studies, interaction or University atmosphere, for example. The award has been handed out since 2015.

The award was given to electronic examination for the following reasons:

Electronic examination enables exams to be taken at a freely chosen time or on the student’s own computer. This has increased in popularity since autumn 2018 among teachers and students alike.

Constant learning and the changing life situations of students demand tangible changes to the conventional operating methods, and electronic examination is a great example of this. Flexible studying makes life easier for students who are working or have children, for example.

The electronic examination project has been advanced by Venla Virtakoivu and Henri Rämä, in particular.

Opintoasiainsitsit [Learning Services Sitsit] is a party bringing together the student representatives in administration and the University staff.

Government cuts put a stop to the construction of student housing

We are shocked by the recent cuts of the Finnish Government which put student housing and its construction at stake. In its session on spending limits, the Government made significant cuts to the special group investment grants for student housing construction, which makes the commencement of already planned housing projects in the capital region uncertain and complicates the housing situation for students as well as the housing activities of the Aalto University Student Union (AYY).
