Add Learning Activities

The UC Learning Center (UCLC) learning management system allows organizations across campus to offer learning, development, and  training activities to all UCLC users, an individual department or unit, or a select audience. If you would like to establish a new activity in the UC Learning Center, whether classroom-based or online, or add new offerings of an existing classroom-based activity, please complete and submit the appropriate form below.

Instructor-Led Activities

If you would like to add a scheduled live instructor-led activity (in-person or virtual) to the UC Learning Center, please email a completed activity request form to UCRLearning@ucr.edu To request additional dates for an existing activity, please use the additional offerings form.

Additional ILT Offerings Request Form

Interested in offering a Zoom webinar? See the FAQ below.

Roster Reconciliation

Instructors must submit completed sign-in sheets for classroom activities to UCRLearning@ucr.edu in order for learner attendance to be reflected in the UCLC. We recommend rosters be submitted as soon as possible after the activity has ended. If a roster is not received within five years of the class end date, any outstanding registrations may be canceled.

For details on printing sign-in sheets see the Instructor Guide.

eCourses or Web-Based Activities

Please complete an activity request form and include a zipped SCORM file or an AICC link. If a file is too big to email, we can provide access to a SharePoint site for file sharing if needed. If you would like to add other types of online activities or documents, please email UCRLearning@ucr.edu to confirm compatibility. File size limit in all cases is 2GB.

Learning Activities FAQ

  • How long before my activity is available for registration?

    Classroom-based activities: For classroom activities we may need up to three business days to process new requests or any changes.

    Online activities: For online activities we may need up to three business days to perform the initial testing of the submitted course file. If any issues are identified during testing these will be reported back to the developer for correction. Then any new versions will again be tested. Once a file passes testing it will be uploaded into the UCLC and opened for registration. The time from initial request to final course in production could take days or even months, depending on the complexity of needed corrections and availability of your course developer and testing in the UCLC.

  • How do I cancel a class?

    Please email UCRLearning@ucr.edu as soon as possible when you know a class needs to be canceled, even if it is after the fact. When we cancel a class in the UC Learning Center, the system emails all registrants and notifies them of the cancellation. We also remove their registrations from the canceled class so that they may register for an alternative offering of the course. If you know the class will be rescheduled and have the new date and time we can let learners know about that as well.

  • How do I make a change to an existing activity?

    Please email UCRLearning@ucr.edu with any needed changes, e.g., rescheduling, cancellations, changes to logistics, etc. Depending on the type and scope of the change we may ask you complete a new activity request form.

  • I need to update the content of an existing eCourse – can the EOD or UCLC team help?

    Neither Employee & Organizational Development nor the UCLC administrators currently provide eLearning development services to the campus. Training owners will need to work with either a developer in their organization or an external vendor to update or create eCourses.

  • I need to deliver training to students, can I use the UC Learning Center to do so?

    Not at this time. Access to the UC Learning Center is restricted and student access is limited as described in the policy below. If you need to deliver an eCourse to students, you may be able to use iLearn or eLearn. Please contact Josh Hoerger, Manager, Student Systems Support to learn more.

  • How do I offer a virtual ILT via Zoom?

    About Zoom

    All faculty, staff, and students have a Basic account by default, and may log in at: https://ucr.zoom.us.

    When hosting a meeting, it is important to know what type of account you are hosting from and what type of meeting ID you will use:

    • A free Basic account allows up to 300 participants and video conferences up to 40 minutes.
    • A Pro account allows video conferences of up to 24 hours with up to 300 participants.  
    • A Webinar account can host video conferences of up to 500 participants.
    • Determine if you would rather use a Personal Meeting ID vs. a standard Meeting ID, we recommend using scheduled meeting IDs in the UCLC so that they expire after the event ends.

    Account upgrade requests should be made via ServiceLink. For additional details read the ITS Knowledge Base article on Zoom Video Conferencing.

      • In the Additional Information box include the meeting invite: URL to join the meeting and any additional information users should have before joining the meeting (e.g., audio instructions or a password if you are using one, etc.).
    3. Have participants register in the UC Learning Center UCLC. They will receive a registration confirmation email with webinar details. See information on Attending Virtual Sessions via Zoom, MS Teams, or Similar in the Learner Guide.
    4. Download the sign-in sheet from the UCLC.
    5. Host the meeting from Zoom.
    6. Take Attendance* during the meeting using the sign-in sheet from the UCLC, checking off attendees and noting No Shows or unregistered participants.

    8. Email the final roster to ucrlearning@ucr.edu for processing in the UCLC.

    ACCESSIBILITY NOTE: We recommend putting the recording through some tool or service that will offer closed captioning and/or possibly embedding it in an eCourse. Uploading the recording to YouTube may also be an option. See Getting Started with Closed Captioning for Zoom options.

    *TIP: You might require users to register in Zoom to help track attendance.

  • How do I offer a virtual ILT via MS Teams?

    About MS Teams

    All staff have an Office 365 account by default, which includes Teams, and may sign in at: https://office.com. Users may access Teams either through their O365 account in a web browser or by downloading the Teams app to their device. See the ServiceLink Knowledge Base article Office 365 – Download/Install Office or Access Online for details. (Students see Office 365 - Student Advantage and Download Directions.)

    It is important to determine which meeting type will best suit your needs. The following table summarizes the three types of meetings, the number of recommended participants, how participants can interact in the meeting, and registration information. We recommend using the Webinar feature for its registration and attendance tracking support, particularly if you will have a larger class size.

    NOTE: UCR's current licensing does not support call-in capabilities, i.e., phone support, for Teams. Audio is strictly available through the app or a web browser.

Library Retention Policy

Any instructor-led learning activity in the UC Learning Center library that has not been offered within the last 24 months will be subject to removal from the library. Please note that the activity will remain in the UCLC but will not be visible in the library or course searches unless a new offering is added. Questions about hidden activities may be directed to UCRLearning@ucr.edu.

Student Access Policy

The UC Learning Center may not be used to deliver learning activities to a UCR student who is not also an employee or contingent worker (as established in UCPath) of the University, except solely for the purpose of delivering learning activities which UCR requires employees to complete in order to access certain facilities. For example, delivering safety training required in order to work in a laboratory for academic credit.
