Oodi-based enrolment

In general, enrollments should be administered in Oodi. After students have enrolled to the course in Oodi, they can access the course workspace in a Student role when they next time login to MyCourses. 

Every session (login) in MyCourses starts with an automated Oodi check of the user's access rights to workspaces. 

In addition, the member lists of all MyCourses workspaces are hourly synced from Oodi. This integration means that if a user is added to a course in Oodi, he/she will be added to MyCourses workspace during next login to MyCourses or automatically after one hour the latest.

Inactive students

Student´s status turn to "inactive" in MyCourses workspace and he/she has no access in a student role

  • when the student´s enrolment status in Oodi is either planned, rejected or canceled; or
  • when the student has archived the course registration in Oodi. It is recommended that course enrolment is archived only after the course grades are given in Oodi.

The teacher can remove an inactive student from the user´s list in MyCourses. 


If you have been marked as a Teacher in WebOodi (vastuuopettaja, luennoitsija or harjoitustöiden pitäjä) you will automatically get Teacher rights to your course workspaces. Your own courses are shown in the upper navigation listing in MyCourses.

Please note that persons who are marked as a Virkailija for a course level teaching event in Oodi, will get automatically teacher access to the corresponding course workspace - their role is called Workspace AssistantThe role is intended for personnel who may be responsible for supporting course activities.

There is generally no need for enrollment keys. In some cases the teacher may wish to manually add persons with differing roles to the course site.

You can add members also manually.

Users, including HAKA-users, can be enrolled to course workspaces manually only if they have at least once logged in to MyCourses.

Self enrolment

In self enrolment, students get access to a workspace with a enrolment key set by teacher. With group enrolment key, students also get a group membership in a workspace. Time-based limitations can be set.

Self enrolment is used in workspaces with no Oodi-integration.




External (not HAKA or Aalto users) workspace members are nor allowed in MyCourses. Faculty members, who wish to invite for example their foreign colleagues to the workspace, can request a Visitor Account for the visitor. More information (requires aalto-login).

Please note that persons who act as a Category Assistant for all courses of a specific category (school or department level) have similar rights than a Teacher in all  respective workspaces. Category Assistants role is granted by request on behalf of the school or department (more information). The role is intended for service personnel who may be responsible for supporting course activities.
