What is Into?

Into (http://into.aalto.fi) is a portal for Aalto University students into information relating to studies, to Aalto services and to the students’ own university. The website also collects the news and events of Aalto University for Bachelor and Master’s students and for doctoral candidates. In Into, all content is public (= does not require logging in) and for the most part in three languages.

Into consists of several sites: in addition to the School sites for both Bachelor and Master’s students and for doctoral candidates, the departments of the School of Art, Design and Architecture and the School of Business as well as the degree programmes and master’s programmes of the schools of technology have their own sites. Services also have their own site. You can start browsing Into by selecting your School under the title Bachelor and Master’s Students or Doctoral Candidates.

The main parts of Into are

  • Bachelor and Master's Students: The most important source of information for Bachelor and Master’s students; content is organized by School and by degree programme/department.

Into synchronises Aalto University’s online communications

Into is a twin service for intranet Inside for Aalto staff. While the content of Inside is targeted at staff, the content of Into is designed for students. Both groups gain access to the each other's channels.

Into does not extend to course-related matters -  specific course information is available in WebOodi and in MyCourses learning environment (mycourses.aalto.fi).

Below is an overview of the different web-based services for teaching and studying from the student’s point of view.
