This page explains what an Online Group is, how you can request one, and how to access my.uaeu Online Group Training resources.
What is an Online Group?
Online Groups are used by Departments, Committees and Student Associations, to share documents, hold online discussions etc etc in a private space - just for Group members. At the UAEU staff, faculty and students can request a group to be made for them inside http://my.uaeu.ac.ae
Note: my.uaeu Groups are not for teaching and learning. They are for administrative or non-curricula University purposes. For teaching and learning online, please consider using UAEU Blackboard - http://elearning.uaeu.ac.ae
In order to request a Group, follow these steps:
- Visit the website http://my.uaeu.ac.ae and Login with your UAEU Webmail account
- Click on Groups in the top right corner
- Then click click Request Group top left corner of screen
- Fill in the form fields - it should take about 5 mins mx. Some fields are:
