Guide for authors of learning resources for the UOC

If you have been commissioned to produce materials, you must follow these steps:

 

STEP 1. You will receive an email from the UOC with your login details (user name 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 user name 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). -> see the descriptive guide  

STEP 3. Go to your authorship contract, download it and then sign it electronically. -> See the descriptive guide 

(Please note: there may be a wait time of up to two weeks between receipt of the email with your UOC Campus login details and the time your contract becomes available to sign online.) 

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.
