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. Instructions for using ulearn features are also embedded into course materials, and self-help guides are available via a Student Help link in ulearn.

Support specialists are also available to provide support via phone or email.
