Content Repository

To access the content store, follow the following steps:

  1. Access iscte’s academic management platform in
  2. Select the “Login Page” tab.
  3. Authenticate using iscte account credentials (e.g. and password).
  4. Go to the “Teaching” tab.
  5. Select the “Content Store” option from the left side menu.

The content store is a feature that allows you to manage/make available:

  • Files
  • Links
  • Sub Folders
  • Text

The entire UC faculty is the repository manager, and there are no differences in permissions between them. 

By default only students enrolled in the UC can query the contents of the repository, but repository managers (teachers) may change this behavior.

In the 1st entry in the content store functionality, the teacher is asked to create a new repository.

Simple version: with only one run (UC taught in only one course)

Complex version: if the UC is being taught in more than one course (more than one unit of execution). Then the list of execution units of the same unit of competence will be shown (list of the same UC in other courses/classes).

If the teacher wishes to unify and manage the entire UC in the content store management module together, then he/she must select all the CUs he or she wants to join and then click the Create Repository button

If the teacher has not associated all the courses in the previous step, you can later associate the UC in another course that is missing.

You should go to each of them, load the create repository link, and then associate with the existing repository.
