UFPUV – Virtual University
UFPUV offers the support and mediation of electronic resources to extend the university’s activity beyond its physical and time restrictions (“anywhere, anytime, anyhow”). The most visible part of UFPUV is its collaborative teaching platform. Using an Internet connection, a browser and the assigned login information, any user can interact and develop their teaching/learning process at UFP’s Virtual University. UFPUV is also used to complement in-classroom learning, in integration with other information systems at UFP. UFPUV essentially supports initiatives in a mixed system (by blending in-classroom learning with distance learning – b-learning), allowing more flexibility and freedom in learning for each individual to achieve their own rhythm.
