Abstract

Education providers aim to meet today's education requirements by employing, among other things, education technology solutions that increase flexibility. This has also happened with the master's level mathematical information technology degree directed to adults. In the degree program, lecture videos brought in together with face-to-face teaching provide good opportunities for flexible educational arrangements. Education with the help of videos can be arranged in such a way that students themselves will be able to choose their study mode in accordance with their needs. When students themselves can choose their study modes, many different ways to take advantage of the flexibility provided are created. It seems that students with different participation styles achieve the aims for their study progress in different ways. The purpose of this paper is to profile students with different study modes, the profiling being based on a structured questionnaire. In this way we try to find out what are the factors that affect the study mode. Our investigation focuses on both the effect of internal factors, such as motivation, and the effect of external factors, such as distance and time limitations, in the choice of a study method.
