Flipped classroom and flipped learning are quickly expanding in Finnish university pedagogy. In particular, videos and other distance learning options are preferred by such students who are already working while finalizing their studies.This flipped learning experiment was executed in five implementations of two courses (2016– 2018). Flipped learning was carried out as a partial application: first, students read the topics in advance; second, they were supposed to make questions or otherwise affect on the contents of the lectures. Questions were implemented as weekly tasks to be completed in the learning management systems. The questions comprised both post- and pre-tasks. The post-task scanned the past lecture and pre-test one about the topics of the upcoming lecture. In addition, there was a comment section, where the students could leave questions about the topics they would like to be discussed in more detail in an upcoming lecture.In results, we will discuss the correlation between the weekly activity, assignment and exam points and examine the functionality of the system.
