Click the numbers in the pictures to navigate between different views!

After creating a course, your new course will be found on the Tasks and courses tab.


Adding pupils to a course

Open the Tasks and courses tab. Click on the cover of the course book you created and go to it’s Settings tab.

First, you need to activate the pupils’ licences. You can assign pupils to a course in several ways:

Adding pupils manually with Add or edit pupils (2A)

Recommended when there are few new pupils or the teaching group is small. On the Settings page for a course, click on the Add or edit pupils button. Fill in the pupil’s details and click Add pupils. 

The Select from current or archived lists button can be used to add pupils from a previous course to the book. You can see the groups from the previous year by changing the learning period menu to the year 2021-2022.

If you are adding pupils to the course manually yourself, you do not need to send the template/example message and codes below. An invitation to the platform is sent automatically to the new pupil’s email. The invitation contains a link to register by creating an account or using another authentication method. After completing the registration, the pupil will be automatically added to the correct school and course. No automatic invitation will be sent to previous users of Opiq, but the course will appear on their Opiq homepage.   

Joining with a code (2B)

This method is recommended if you have a large number of pupils and/or several groups. Click on the green Activate joining with code button and copy the code into the Student instructions below sent to the group. 

Also include your school code in the message. This code can be found on Opiq by clicking on your name in the top right-hand corner and clicking School settings.


Student’s instructions:

Creating an Opiq account and joining a course

A) If you do not already have an Opiq account, create an account here.

1) Select ”I do not have an Opiq account, I want to create it”.

2) Accept the terms and conditions of the service.

3) Select ”Create an account using e-mail” (you can also create an account with Facebook and Google) and fill in the requested information. Your school code is XXXXXXXXX . 

4) Also remember to check the box that reads ”I am not a robot”.

5) Finally, click on ”Create Opiq account and join a school”. You will now receive a registration link via e-mail.

6) Create an account using the link in your e-mail.  Your email address will be your username, and you will create a password yourself.

It is important to always log in to the platform using the same button as the one used to create/authenticate the account, and not to create multiple user accounts. The Opiq button is used if the account was created using an email and password. If the password is forgotten, it can be renewed by clicking on ”Forgot your Opiq password?” in the login screen.

B) Joining a course  

1. Login to Opiq at https://e-oppi.opiq.fi/Account/Login.

Always use the login button you used to create your account (MPASS/Google/Facebook OR the Opiq button if you created your account by email).

2. Click on the ”Join a course” link on the home page and enter the joining code XXXXXXXX in the text box that appears. Click on the green ”Join course” button. (the teacher will fill in the code)


Archive or hide the course

The teacher can archive the course, in which case it will also be removed from the front page of both other teachers and students of the course. Once the course is archived, it cannot be used in teaching. After this, the course can be found in the archive view, which can be accessed from the More options link in the Courses module on the front page. However, the course can be restored from the archive for teaching use in its settings view. The teacher can also just hide the course from his own home page. This does not affect the front page view of other teachers or students of the course.


Functions in digital books

All functions within the book are visible to both the teacher and the pupil. If the teacher adds their own material to the book using the Add own content function, this addition will also appear in the pupil’s book.

The colour highlights and comments made to the text are specific to the user account, i.e. they are visible only to the user who made them. All editing functions are also book-specific, which means that they also appear in courses created later.

The artificial intelligence-assisted More like this feature can be used to find content on the same topic in our different textbooks. By using this function, the users have access to our whole library of textbooks from different subjects via links.

The digital book can be navigated with Opiq’s own buttons in addition to the browser’s back button. The Navigation buttons in the upper right corner show a list of both the chapter and its tasks, as well as a shortcut button, e.g., to move from the chapter to the tasks and vice versa. Use the arrow keys to move between chapters. The left-pointing arrow in the upper left corner always takes you to a higher level in the hierarchy.


Exercise kit

Pupils do not automatically see exercises which are in the book’s exercise kit. The teacher can easily share exercises to pupils or assign a separate set of tasks. There are also some exercises inside study kits and those are visible to pupils too.

With the Share with pupils tool, you can quickly publish the exercises for the pupils to see. The pupil can find these exercises in the table of contents view by chapter from the number button indicating their number. The pupil can do, save and submit exercises one by one, but cannot edit answers after sending them to the teacher. However, the teacher can only see a summary of the answers (both for individual pupils and the whole group) but cannot view the pupils’ individual answers. Pupils will see the correct answers to the automatically corrected tasks when they have submitted their answers to the teacher.

Use the Assign task tool for exercises you want to review, comment, and/or rate and resubmit as an assignment for correction. Exercises you have created yourself must also be shared with this tool. You can assign tasks to all or only some pupils. These assigned tasks will be also notified on the student’s home page. The pupil can do, save and then submit all tasks in the set at the same time. The teacher can give evaluation with buttons, make comments and then publish results to pupils with the Disclose score button or send them back for reassignment. Please note that the evaluation method can be changed, and the percentage score is only the default setting.

TIP: Share all exercises to pupils so they can see and do them independently if they want. After sharing the exercises of the chapter, proceed to the next chapter with the arrow buttons in the upper corner. Use the Assign tasks tool to create task sets only from the exercises you want to evaluate in detail. This makes continuous evaluation of pupils easier, as all tasks do not have to be reviewed. Please note that you can also compile sets of tasks from exercises found in different chapters.

Teacher’s view

Pupil’s view

The student can see all the tasks within a chapter and can complete them as many times as they like. The correct answers are displayed after two attempts. In German course books, exercises can be found in the Übungen chapters.

Exercises shared by the teacher are found via the book’s table of contents view (1). The numbers next to the title of each chapter serve as links to these shared exercises. The exercises can be completed one by one and submitted to the teacher, but submitted answers cannot be corrected afterwards. After submitting the exercises, the student will see the correct answers for the automatically checked exercises.

Assigned exercises that the teacher considers important can be found on the Tasks tab (2), and will also provide shortcuts to the student’s home page. The exercises assigned as a task should be completed one by one, and finally submitted to the teacher for assessment. The submitted task can be requested to be sent back for revision. The teacher can also re-assign the task to the student.

Using the license after leaving school

It is possible to use the 60-month license even after finishing high school. Before the end of school, the student must change his username from the school e-mail to his own personal e-mail.

Change a username by clicking on your name in the upper right corner → Settings → Change username. Your personal e-mail address must be added to the field and then click Send confirmation to e-mail address. The change will then be finalised using the link in the email. If the course is not visible on the homepage, it can be found in the archive: Click the Archive button on the homepage. The courses can also be accessed through the library, if the license is valid.
