material is designed for University of Helsinki students who are preparing to start writing their bachelor's or master's thesis – or anyone else looking to improve their information seeking and management skills.
While this course is open for everyone, some resources used may only be available for UH students.
note that you can participate the course in a way that works best for your schedule. We
expect the elements of each section to take around 1-5 hours depending on your
learning style and what you know beforehand. Therefore, it has not been rated how much time is needed to pass this course as a whole.
When all the compulsory assignments are completed, you can have an automated certificate (pdf) of your achievements. The certificate is not an official credit, but an indication of you having completed the compulsory assignments.
You can participate in the MOOC in two ways:
1) as a guest (guests cannot complete the course, just browse)
2) log in the MOOC (either using the Haka user authentication system or by creating a new user account) and enrol on the course (Course Dashboard > Enrol me to this course as a student).
