5. Instructions for students in a nutshell
You will find TUNI Moodle at moodle.tuni.fi.
There are three login methods in TUNI Moodle, which you will find on the page moodle.tuni.fi/login/.
Login with TUNI account
If you are a student at Tampere University or Tampere University of Applied Sciences, log in with your TUNI account.
Login with HAKA account
If you are a student at another Finnish higher education institution, log in with your own institution's account. Choose your own institution from the menu and log in with your own account.
NOTE! If you are a CampusOnline, FiTech or JOO student and have received a TUNI account, always use your TUNI account in TUNI Moodle.
Login with special Moodle account
If you have been provided with a special Moodle account for logging into TUNI Moodle, log in with the account you received.
Log out of Moodle by clicking on your profile icon in the upper right corner and selecting Log out from the menu that opens.
Students are automatically enrolled to most courses based on confirmed registrations. You will see these courses on your dashboard when you are logged into Moodle.
Some courses may require registration with a key. If registration with a key is enabled, you will receive a key from the teacher. The teacher can also give the address of the course area in connection with the key, but if you don't know the address, search for the course in Moodle by typing its code, name or part of the name in the search field at the top of the page. Click on the name of the course from the search results, enter the enrolment key you received in the field and press the Enrol me button. Please note that the key must be written in the exact correct format, taking into account upper and lower case letters. When you have registered with the key for the first time, the course will remain visible on your dashboard.

Edit your profile settings by clicking on the profile icon in the upper right corner. From the menu that opens, select Profile -> Edit profile.
How do I add a picture to my profile?
You can add a picture to your user profile. Click on the profile icon, select Profile -> Edit profile from the menu that opens and go to User picture on the page. Add an image in .jpg or .png file format from your computer to the server either via the file picker or by dragging and dropping and update profile. Please note that the maximum file size allowed in Moodle is 100 Mb and the image cannot be saved if it is larger than this. When saving, the image file is cut into a square and its size changes to 100 x 100 pixels.
When you log in to Moodle, you will be redirected to your dashboard page where you will see all your courses.
You can organize your course listing in the Course overview section in different ways.
To view the course list in grid view with images, select Card as the display mode, or as a more concise list, select either List or Summary to display not only the course names but also their descriptions. Change the view from the menu above the course names.
You can sort the courses alphabetically by name or by when you last accessed, to get the most active courses to the top of the list.
You can remove unnecessary courses from the view or star the courses you want from the menu you find by clicking the three dots next to the course name.
From the menu on the left, you can filter the view by selecting All (except removed from the view), In progress, Future, Past, Starred, or only the courses that were removed from the view.
You can unenrol yourself from a course only if you have registered for the course with an enrolment key. In that case, you will find the unenrolment function in the Moodle course tabs under the course name. Select the More tab to unenrol yourself from the course.
If you are a student at the Tampere University, you are able to cancel your registration in Sisu before the start of the study period, after which you will also be automatically removed from the Moodle course area within one hour. If the course is already running and you are no longer able to cancel your registration in Sisu, contact Sisu support.
If you are a TAMK student, you can cancel your registration in Pakki before the start of the study period. If the course is already running and you can no longer cancel the registration in Pakki, ask the teacher to remove your confirmed registration from Peppi, after which you will be automatically removed from the Moodle course area the next night as well.
Course areas are visible to students in Moodle as long as the teacher keeps the course area published. However, on your Moodle dasboard, you can hide unnecessary course areas by removing them from your view. Select Remove from view behind the three dots. From the menu on the left, you can display these course areas if you want, by selecting Removed from view.
