    1 What is Toledo? Toledo is short for "TOetsen en LEren Doeltreffend Ondersteunen", or to efficiently support testing and learning. Toledo is the web-based virtual learning environment at the Association K.U. Leuven. Apart from making course materials and tests available online, it also allows linking to external sources, and offers different opportunities for students and instructors to communicate with each other through announcements, mail, discussion boards, chat rooms and many more. In addition, instructors can use a test platform, allowing students to evaluate their own study progress. Toledo offers access to a whole range of learning activities, like assessments, tasks, group work and e-portfolio tools.

    2 What do I need to use Toledo? To access and use the tools in Toledo, you need a computer with internet connection and browser. If you don't have a pc at home, you can go to the PC-classrooms of the university: → http://ludit.kuleuven.be/computer/pcklas/index_en.html  Recommended browsers for Toledo: on Windows XP and Windows Vista, one should use Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 8, Firefox 3.0 or Firefox 3.5. For Windows 7, we recommend Internet Explorer 8, Firefox 3.0 or Firefox 3.5. On Mac OS 10.4 and 10.5, Safari 3, Safari 4, Firefox 3.0 or Firefox 3.5 are the preferred browsers. With Mac OS 10.6 we recommend Safari 4, Firefox 3.0 or Firefox 3.5. Other browsers than those three mentioned (like Chrome, Opera, …) , and older versions, do not support all tools of the learning environment, and for that reason, they should also be avoided.

    3 How can I log in? All students registered at the K.U.Leuven automatically receive an Internet id (s- number) and password. With these, you can access centrally managed computer services such as email, pc rooms, dial-in, KotNet,... You can also use this user-id and password to log into Toledo. The day after your registration, you can log into Toledo.  Never give your password to anyone else! You can change your password at https://password.kuleuven.be Start your web browser and go to http://toledo.kuleuven.be. Click the Login button. The central K.U.Leuven login screen will appear. Log in using your user id (s- number) and password.

    4 What to do when you forget you password? If you don't know or remember your password, check out https://password.kuleuven.be On this page, you can also change your password and you will find instructions on how to ask your password or to change it when you have forgotten it.

    5 How can I enroll into a Toledo course?

    First make sure you are officially subscribed at the Hallen (Naamsestraat) and have chosen your course components via the ISP-tool (Individual study programme). Automatically, you will become a member of the corresponding Toledo courses. In 99% of the cases, you will be automatically enrolled in the Toledo courses, connected to the courses in your official study programme. If you are enrolled into a study programme that does not use the ISP application, or to enroll to courses not belonging to your official programme, you can use the ‘In- en uitschrijfmodule – (Un)enrollment module’. You can find it in Toledo, on the tab page 'Admin'. This tool allows you to choose unofficial Toledo courses and to make changes to your list at any time. Attention: by enrolling in a course with this ‘In- en uitschrijfmodule – (Un)enrollment module’, you will not be officially enrolled in the course; it only gives access to Toledo courses. This application does NOT SUBSTITUTE THE ISP registration!

    5.1 Terminology At the K.U.Leuven, every study programme consists out of several course components. Every course can consist of one or more learning activities Example 1:

    Course component: G0N90A Numerical math Learning activity 1: G0N90a Numerical math

    Example 2:

    Course component: G0N11A Statistical models and data-analysis Learning activity 1: G0N11a Statistical models and data-analysis theory Learning activity 2: G0N58a Statistical models and data-analysis exercises

    Every learning unit has an equivalent course in Toledo.

    5.2 Entering the ‘In- en uitschrijfmodule – (Un)enrollment module’ Log in to Toledo. Open the tab page 'Admin'. Click on the link ‘In- en uitschrijfmodule vakken / (un)enrollment module courses’ within the ‘In- en uitschrijfmodule – (Un)enrollment module’.

    Now you can see a list of Toledo courses in which you are enrolled. Certain courses in the list have a red cross in front of them. This means that the Toledo course is unavailable at present. You are correctly enrolled into this course, but the instructor doesn't use the course (yet). On the tab page 'My Toledo', this course appears underneath the header 'UNAVAILABLE' and you cannot click on it. Toledo course in which you are officially enrolled, have the icon of a lock in front of them. You cannot unenroll yourself from these Toledo courses, because they belong to your official study programme. Changes to this official programme can only be

    made through the ISP application. Click the button 'Change official study program (ISP)' to officially unenroll from certain courses. This can only be done within certain periods of the academic year, outside these periods you have to contact your ISP responsible (contact mail address can be found in the ISP application). Courses without the lock icon do not belong (anymore) to your official study programme. Either you have enrolled yourself for these courses through the enrollment module, or a staff member has enrolled you manually, or you have unenrolled yourself in the ISP application. You can unenroll yourself from these unofficial courses (see 5.4).

    5.3 How to enroll yourself for courses that do not belong to your official study programme

    Sometimes you might want to enroll into courses that do not belong to your ISP:

    - you are enrolled into a study programme that does not (yet) use the ISP application

    - a professor teaches two similar courses, but uses only one Toledo course, and asks all students of the second course to enroll themselves into the used Toledo course

    - You want to have a quick loo
