Guide for authors of learning resources for the UOC
STEP 1. You will receive an email from the UOC with your login details (username and password) to access the UOC's Virtual Campus (www.uoc.edu).
(Please note: if you have previously been commissioned to produce materials at any time from October 2016 onwards, you will not receive this email, as you already have a username and password for the Virtual Campus.)
STEP 2. Log in to the UOC's Virtual Campus and fill in your bank details, address and other personal details (or, if you have worked for the UOC before, check they are all correct). You can enter and edit your details but will not be able to sign the contract at this stage. -> see the descriptive guide
STEP 3. Around 15 days after the Campus login details message is sent you'll receive an email in your Campus mailbox telling you that your contract is ready. Go to your authorship contract, download it and then sign it electronically. -> See the descriptive guide
STEP 4. If you are a tax resident of any country other than Spain, please read this information.
STEP 5. Once you have finished a chapter or an amount of work that represents a significant part of the job, you can send a sample of the materials directly to the professor who gave you the commission.
STEP 6. You must send the professor who gave you the commission the definitive original copies of the corresponding materials before the date specified in your authorship contract.
STEP 7. Should you have any doubts, queries or problems, please contact the Help Service.
