When the UP Open University (UPOU) adopted online learning as a mode to deliver its courses in 2007, it developed a website where students can access their courses and student support services as well as receive important notifications from the university. It is called MyPortal, an open source learning management system powered by Moodle.

All the interactions between and among teachers and students take place in MyPortal. Each

online course (or subject) would have its own virtual classroom or what we in UPOU call

the ‘course site.’

All course/subject discussions, assignment bins, reference links, course packages, etc. are available there. To access the MyPortal, visit https://myportal.upou.edu.ph/. An orientation on how to use the course site is available in MyPortal.
