We’ve all got a story to tell… Share yours on the UOCpèdia!



The UOC has marked a milestone. It’s been 25 years since 1995 and the start of this visionary project that revolutionized learning. But above and beyond the history of the institution, there are many other stories that only you can tell.

Did you know about the blackout that happened at Tibidabo during the inauguration of the University while President Ferraté was showing the Campus to the president of the Government of Catalonia?

We all have a story like that to tell! That’s why we’re unveiling the first of our internal collaborative activities to mark the 25th anniversary: the UOCpèdia. It’s somewhere where we can share our experiences from the last 25 years. The project will be built from top to bottom by everyone who’s been part of the UOC’s staff.


What is the UOCpèdia?

It’s a wiki where we’ll write the history of the UOC as seen through the eyes of those who don’t always get to tell their side of the story, through the reminiscences and anecdotes that only a select few can remember.


What can you find there?

Right now, there are already a number of pages that are ‘under construction’. They’ve been organized into four categories and more will be added each month!
