3. Purpose of the register 
The purpose of the register is to enable the realization of the LITO study module as completely online teaching. Registrar collects from the participating universities information of the students who have registered to the courses (collected information is specified in chapter 4) in order to arrange their access to the electronic learning platform. In addition, the information is needed to create study rights to the responsible university/universities of each course. 
The information is also used to transfer study credits between the course responsible university’s/universities’ systems and the student’s home university without the student having to ask for the transfer as a separate process. The email address of the student is used for notifications related to LITO studies (for example, the teachers can notify the students about course practices via email before the course begins).
