Projected date for version installation: 24 January 2022

The short summary below describes the changes introduced in Sisu’s new version from the viewpoint of Aalto University’s operations.
Detailed version information is available in Funidata’s version release notes (in Finnish only). The version introduces improvements and new features to Sisu’s student, teacher and administrative staff interfaces.
Funidata is currently developing Sisu’s functionalities for Open University students as well.
