How can Gustavo help you?

The UOC Library is the home of the learning resources kitchen. Some of the materials that you can find in the classroom are outsourced to experts in the subject and are created specifically for each course; they are multiformat contents such as wikis, blogs, manuals or videos.

Gustavo monitors the publishing process to guarantee that course materials will be available in time in the classrooms (sending out written material assignments, receiving originals, checking delivery, etc).

He also ensures that the whole process involving learning resources operates smoothly, and works to adapt them to an increasingly digital UOC community. The goal is for multimedia, multi-device, interactive online materials to become a key part of what makes studying at the UOC so different.

Education and professional career

Gustavo is specialized in computer science and has taken a number of courses in programming and office automation. In the year 2000, he joined the team at Oberta Publishing, formerly Eurecamedia, to take charge of the layout of teaching materials in web and video format, using tools such as Build, DocBook, BuildPipeline and Editorial UOC's Multiformat.

Personal interests

He likes cycling, music and dancing. He is particularly happy when riding his motorbike.
