Aalto Online Learning (A!OLE) 
Our goal is to develop, explore and evaluate novel advanced technical solutions and pedagogical models for online/blended learning.

Learning Challenge Aalto
The future is made today. Tomorrow’s game changers are those who create value to companies and communities. We advocate for new ways of teaching and especially for integrating real life challenges into teaching, to form courses and programs which together with companies inspire, equip and support students towards the future of work.

Programme Attractiveness
Our goal is to create and develop concrete tools that help the programmes to monitor their performance, evaluate their content and to enhance their quality. We also aim to learn what makes programmes attractive and show the programmes how they can collaborate and share best practices in order to become and stay attractive.
