Optima has been JAMK’s primary online learning platform for a long time. In the autumn of 2020, we will introduces our new online learning platform Moodle. It will little by little to replace Optima. We hope that the transition will go as well as possible.

In the online learning platform, you can find the course materials, schedules, online assignments, discussion areas, etc. Teacher use an online learning platform for communication about courses that is forwarded to your email — do not prevent Optima or Moodle from sending information to your email!

Moodle for mobile use: Use Moodle through your browser and save the link to your home screen. The Moodle we use does not support the Moodle App found in app stores.
