About the ulearn learning platform
What is ulearn?
ulearn is our online learning course platform. In ulearn, you’ll access course materials for online courses, communicate with your classmates and engage in learning activities.
How do I use ulearn?
Many of ulearn’s features are intuitive. However, prior to starting your first course, you'll run through a ulearn orientation that will help you explore the platform’s features and give you an opportunity to practice using them.
