  • Ability to view comments and notes from your teachers.

UOC learning resources: on their way to full digitization

After enrolment, you will be able to view any digitally available learning resources, as well as choose your preferred format and language, by visiting your Personal area.

We are committed to offering the majority of our learning resources in digital format. By doing so, we can make them available in multiple formats and languages, and on any device. Likewise, and more importantly, the content can be easily updated and adjusted to meet constantly evolving teaching needs.

Starting next semester, more and more digital-format learning resources will be used on UOC master's degree and postgraduate courses, and in two years' time most of the learning resources for all of the university’s programmes will be digital.
