Quality criteria

The Opin.fi service is developed especially for the needs of continuous learners, emphasising the flexibility of learning and options to select educational content that suits individual needs. The goal is that each of us can integrate learning new things and developing our competence into our everyday life. The quality criteria for e-learning are a tool that supports higher education institutions in producing high-quality educational content for continuous learners.
