The UOC's educational model

The UOC's educational model

The basis of the model

The UOC's educational model has been the University's distinguishing trademark since its beginnings. It has been designed to provide an adequate response to the educational needs of people undertaking lifelong learning, and to get the most out of the Internet's potential as a vehicle for educational activity.

The area responsible for the education model at the eLearning Innovation Center works to see it evolve, attempting to integrate the latest educational and technological trends, but without altering the essence. It sees to it that it is applied at every level of teaching at the UOC.


There are five operational elements of the UOC’s education model:

  1. Design/planning
  2. Teaching activity
  3. Assessment
  4. Content
  5. Technology
