Catalunya (Open University of Catalonia, UOC) Virtual Campus.
My Mobile UOC is designed in response to the needs of all of the UOC’s students. It
lets you easily access classrooms, see whether you have any new messages in your
mailbox, view the learning resources in all the formats available and manage any
appointments you have in your agenda. You can also keep up-to-date with everything
going on at the UOC through the News section or the alerts.
This app doesn’t offer all the features to be found on the Virtual Campus, instead it
provides a selection of tools and contents that can make the most of mobile devices. The
features and tools available will be added to over the coming months.
The application needs the following permissions:
- Modify USB storage: to save materials or attached files.
- Full internet access and view network state: to connect to servers and control when the application is online or not.
The free UOC Maps app for Android provides a virtual forum for members of the UOC community around the world, letting them find each other, communicate and express themselves. This social tool aims to promote community spirit and a feeling of belonging. It is designed to aid communication between members, help people get to know each other and establish professional and personal links within the community.
Simply enter your Campus username and password to sign in. You can then select privacy and language options, and show your profile on the map. Likewise, at any time, you can set whether you want to be visible and what notifications and alerts you wish to receive. Your location will never be monitored when the app is not running.
UOC Maps lets you:
. See other members of the community on the map
. Organize users by profile: Alumni, Students, Faculty, Teaching collaborators and Other members of the community
. View the profile of members of the community
. Send a message to their Campus email address or use the built-in instant messaging system
. Search for people by name, Campus username and bio or geographical area
Wherever you are in the world, you can search and, no doubt, find someone from the UOC community closer than you might think.
