6. How to order special Moodle accounts?

You can order special Moodle accounts to TUNI Moodle for external users.

  • Special Moodle accounts can be ordered by Tampere universities staff members
  • There has to be a justified reason for the order: e.g. training event with external users as participants
  • Special Moodle accounts are free of charge
  • Special Moodle accounts are time-limited
  • Special Moodle accounts can be ordered only for real persons who do not have any other account that can be used to login to TUNI Moodle
  • Users with user account of another Finnish University can login to TUNI Moodle through HAKA login. Do not order an additional special Moodle account for these users.
  • Consider if actual TUNI accounts are needed instead. Users will need TUNI account to access other Tampere universities electronic services.
  • Special Moodle accounts cannot be merged with TUNI account later, so new employees should always wait for their actual TUNI accounts to be activated.
  • Special Moodle accounts will be emailed to the user automatically when the account is created. Account creation or sending the email cannot be scheduled or postponed.
  • Orders are generally processed within five working days (excluding holiday periods).
