In line with UP Open University's vision for “Pamantasang Bukas Para sa Magandang Bukas” and its mandate in RA 10650 (Open and Distance Learning Act) as the lead institution to promote best practices for open and distance learning in the country, the UPOU Multimedia Center has revised and updated its UPOUNetworks -- the university’s window to the world where communal interaction happens in real-time.

The UPOU Networks 3.0, the university's online hub of multimedia resources now has a new logo, new design, new layout, and more features. Users can access a plethora of knowledge in multimedia formats. It now features the following facilities:

UPOU Live, it features lectures, fora, research presentations, seminars, and other university events that are web-streamed on real time. It enables the university to communicate/reach out to it various publics scattered all over the world. Online viewers are also given the chance to interact with the presenters/speakers through an online chat.

UPOU Commons, a repository of the university-produced open educational resources (OER) that can be used and accessed by anyone for free.

UPOU Mix, contains learning materials on various topics and in various formats, i.e., video, podcasts, animation. Speakers/lecturers in these multimedia materials are known experts in their fields.

UPOU OnRecord is an internet radio and also a repository of podcasts produced by UPOU.

UPOU Featured Program showcases UPOU program offerings on a bi-weekly basis.

The UPOU Networks 3.0 was launched publicly during UPOU’s 22nd Anniversary Celebration last 24 February 2017 at its headquarters in Los Baños, Laguna. The anniversary program became the first event livestreamed on the new site. In addition, a mobile app for UPOUNetworks 3.0 is being developed and will be available soon. The original UPOUNetworks was launched in 2010.
