U/LINC was developed with the various types of welding programs in mind. Here are the three levels of U/LINC:

  • Level 1: Agricultural Education, Technology Education, or programs that are introductory in nature.

  • Level 2: Career Centers (Vocational Schools) that teach a two-year welding program at the high school level.

  • Level 3: Community College / Industrial Partner level curriculum.
  • The difference is in the amount of materials you are able to access. To see what content is in in each level, click here.

    As an Instructor, you can purchase:

  • A. An Individual Instructor license.
  • B. Individual Student Licenses.
  • C. A Welding Program Package that contains 1 Instructor License and 40 Student Licenses.
  • D. Additional Instructor Licenses, only after either A or C have been purchased.
  • U/LINC licenses are good for one (1) calendar year and are based on active licenses. An active license is one where either an instructor or student can log in and access U/LINC. Licenses can be transferred from one user to another during the calendar year.

    As an instructor, you manage the licenses in U/LINC. You can add and inactivate students as needed throughout the calendar year.

    You have the ability to inactivate students. This means that students cannot log in to U/LINC. Although students can no longer access the system, their record and U/LINC class activity is stored indefinitely. If a student re-registers for the class, they can be reactivated and their learning history is still there.

    Students can access U/LINC from the student catalog, but students can only see the Student Resources. You can decide if you want your students to have full access to the catalog (much like giving them a textbook) or you can restrict access and assign Student Resources separately.

    Online e-learning classes and tests are not part of the student catalog and therefore must be assigned to the student by the instructor.
