Interlibrary Loan

CourseCasting

CourseCasting is a way to take the lecture with you wherever you go. Based on Podcasting technology, you have the ability to listen to lectures or supplemental material from participating courses. Students will find UWC CourseCasting a complement to their studies and the community is also invited to listen and learn with us. In addition to classroom recordings, UWC CourseCasting also features recordings of campus activities such as poetry readings, lecture series, special topics etc.  View a listing of UWMC CourseCasts at the UWMC CourseCasting webpage.
