UC Student Learning Services for Faculty

Welcome, UMS Faculty

UC Learning Services

Prior to each semester, you will receive an e-mail outlining the steps you need to take to prepare for your course. UC Learning Services is the clearinghouse for course materials, class handouts and exams, as well as graded materials you wish to return to students. The staff is available to answer your questions, explain policies and procedures, and address your concerns. UCLS also coordinates orientations for faculty new to ITV, videoconference or online teaching and learning.

For those new to any of the available delivery modes, see the Course Planning Timeline for contact information, options for student notification, important information on copyright compliance and more…
