Answer:

We would suggest the following;

  1. Check your registration profile on SAS to see if the stream was cancelled.
  2. Check your registration profile to see if you registered for the main class/stream. Some students inadvertently register for the tutorial session alon without registering for the main teaching stream.

Our current version is not compatible with it at the moment. Once there have been changes along this line we will be sure to inform the campus community.

Please however be informed that the OurVLE page is mobile ready and adjusts for easy readability on mobile devices.

Question:

What are some tips to bear in mind regarding my domain password?

(Last edited: Sunday, 18 October 2020, 1:18 AM)
Answer:
Students must have a valid UWI ID to access the OurVLE and its resources.
Students are only given access to their courses per semester. (this has changed somewhat since COVID)
Your password must be active in order for you to access OurVLE.
Your password expires every 120 days. Keep your password secure. Share it with NO ONE!!

Ensure that you log out of OurVLE when you are finished using OurVLE especially on a public computer.
