Persuade your teacher to get on UVLe. Help is just an email away: uvle@up.edu.ph . To bone up, start with "Why UVLe for Teachers".

3. Why didn't I receive the Forum post from my teacher?

Please check the accuracy of your email address indicated in your Profile.

From Course Creators

Aside from DILC staff, deans, department chairmen, college IT officers can be designated as course creators.

1. Why doesn't a teacher's name show in the list of potential users? I want to assign him as teacher of an UVLe course.

Let him register first at UVLe using his UP Webmail account. Only then will his name show up in the list of potential users.
