Hakatemia for Schools

Are you looking for ready-made cybersecurity training material and practical exercises for your students, in Finnish or English, that you can easily assign to groups and track progress? You can stop looking!

Level up!

Gamified learning environment makes learning fun

Hakatemia is a gamified learning environment where students get experience points, levels and badges for successfully completing tasks. On the school leaderboard, students can compete with other students.

Complete tasks to level up

By completing tasks students get experience points and levels.

Master new skills

Hakatemia has different types of exercises that give experience points to the skills related to the exercise.

Compete on the leaderboard

Students can compete on the school leaderboard and the whole Hakatemia leaderboard against other students.

Keep up your streak

A long streak of completing tasks increases the student's streak, encouraging independent practice on weekends, for example.

Get badges

By completing challenges, students get badges that are visible in the student profile.

Designed for teachers

Assign students to groups, give tasks and track progress

Hakatemia is designed especially for teachers. You can create groups, give tasks and track students progress. Students can also print a certificate of completion and send it to the teacher.

You can create groups and add students to groups. You can give groups tasks or goals and track their progress.

You can give groups tasks or goals and track their progress. You can assign the group individual tasks, entire courses or entire learning paths.

You can track the progress of the entire school, individual groups or individual students and see which tasks are still pending and which have already been completed.

No VPN required

Real-world lab exercises brought straight to your browser

Hakatemia lab environment has used a variety of technologies to optimize the user experience. We always strive to provide the simplest, most functional and fastest user interface for completing the task.

Web-based terminal

Often lab exercises do not require a full desktop environment, but rather a terminal. For this reason, Hakatemia uses a terminal based on xterm.js, which works directly in your browser. Unlike a full remote desktop, the web terminal works in real time even on slower connections and copy/paste works normally.

Web-based desktop

However, some lab exercises require a full desktop environment. In this case, we use a VNC connection tunneled over WebSockets, which allows a fully functional Kali Linux desktop directly in your browser.

Web-based development environment

In the web development environment, you can write and run code and scripts directly in your browser. This option is typically used when you are required to write or edit code or scripts to complete the task.

Yeah, let's do that!

Relaxed pricing and licensing model

10€ / license / month
Hakatemia is priced so that it is affordable even for small schools. The floating licensing model is also very flexible, so you can choose the model that suits your school.
Annual pricing, pay as you want
Hakatemia for schools is paid for a year at a time, based on the teacher's estimate of the number of licenses required. The number of licenses can be easily increased during the year, in which case the difference will be paid in the next year's billing. You can pay in any way you want, for example by credit card or bank transfer.
Keeping it simple
Let us assume that the school has 100 students studying cybersecurity all year round. The school also has a three-month intensive course that requires 100 more licenses. In such a situation, we can simply agree that licenses are needed for the whole year, approximately 125 (100 all year round and 100 for a quarter of the year) and bill for that year according to 125 licenses.

A continually growing selection

A course for everyone

We are constantly adding new courses, modules, labs, practice environments, challenges and tools to Hakatemia. Start now and you will have plenty of new things to learn when you have learned the current material. A hacker is never finished, but we will develop together!
