“Digitalisation is transforming higher education. Aalto University considered this a strategic challenge and launched in 2016 a 5 year project, Aalto Online Learning (A!OLE), to address it and reform its current educational culture. […] The goal is to develop, explore and evaluate novel advanced technical solutions and pedagogical models for online/blended learning, often best realized as inverted/flipped classroom (see e.g. Lage et al. 2000 and Mason Shuman, Cook 2013). The key results are both new online learning resources for students, and dissemination of identified best practices and models into wider use for teachers in all Aalto schools and units to facilitate a creation of engaging online/blended courses.” 
Chair of the A!OLE coordination group, prof. Lauri Malmi (Aalto SCI))
