Instructions for using Promentor courses

Choose Helmet and then log in by typing your library card number and PIN number. 

When you log in to the service for the first time, you will be given a survey form (finalise your account) into which you have to enter your name and email address so that you can be notified when a course you have reserved becomes available. You will also be asked to accept the privacy statement and terms and conditions of the platform provider Rockway.

The courses can be used on computers, tablets and smartphones. Use an updated version of your web browser. The service requires constant web connection. The language studio function can only be used on a computer and it requires the latest Adobe Flash Player application.

In all the courses, the support language is Finnish, and the Finnish language courses are suitable especially for immigrants. For the course Suomea 3 kerroksessa, support language is available in both Finnish and English.

Promentor's language courses are divided into smaller, individual sections, which can be borrowed for a maximum of 7 days at a time. There are a total of 50 sections in the service. From one to five licenses have been purchased for each course section. You can make a reservation for a course if it is currently on loan.

You can do exercises and tests on the courses and the results will be stored on your own account. After having completed at least half the course, you will receive an overall assessment on a scale of satisfactory to excellent.
