Toledo is the intranet for all students of VIVES. Here, you can find an overview of all courses for which you are registered and the pertaining course materials. You can also use it to contact your lecturers and to consult the latest notifications pertaining to your programme.

For every course you take, there will automatically be an environment on Toledo in which you can consult all the supplementary information, like the study guide, presentations used by the lecturer in his class...

Guidelines for using Toledo
Because Toledo is the electronic learning environment you will be working with for all your course units, there are some practical arrangements when working with Toledo:

- At the beginning of the academic year, be sure to check if you actually find a Toledo course in your Toledo environment for each of the course units on your individual study program (ISP). This process happens automatically, but if a course is missing, please contact your study track counselor.
- In case of a change or an error in your ISP, it is possible that you still have courses in your Toledo environment that are not (or no longer) on your ISP. In that case it is best to unsubscribe manually. Support for this can be found in the movie on this page.
