About Kolej Poly-Tech MARA (KPTM)
Kolej Poly-Tech MARA, shortened as KPTM, was formerly known as Kolej Yayasan Pelajaran MARA (shortened as KYPM). The KPTM college was initially established as a private higher educational institution right under the Act 1996 (Act 555) of Private Higher Educational Institutions in September 2003. The KPTM is managed and operated by Kolej Poly-Tech MARA Sdn. Bhd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of MARA, i.e., Majlis Amanah Rakyat. KPTM provides a wide range of educational opportunities, courses, and programs in Information Technology, Health Sciences, Computer Science, Social Sciences, Engineering, Accounting, Humanities, Business Management, and Bio-Industry.
In June 1983, MARA Maktab Sains, also known as MARA Community College, based in Kuantan, Pahang, was established. At that time, it delivered a twinning program commonly knowns as AAD, i.e., the American Associate Degree. Over 75 universities well approved the plan throughout the United States and New Zealand as a two plus two transfer degree program.

Moodle is an online learning management system (acronym as LMS) that enables students and educators to create various dynamic courses that extend and deliver a virtual learning environment, anytime and anywhere. The leading resource of Moodle is its courses that include multiple materials and activities. This activity-based model's primary power comes right in combinations of the exercises into groups and sequences, which may help educators guide participants within their learning paths. Thus, per activity can be built on the outcomes of previous ones.
In the online learning system (Oles), various course options detect a course's appearance. It is possible to hide and move parts of the page and different themes that display blocks in varying regions so that not all courses will look like that. For instance, users can delete or move all blocks directly from the right column to the left. That will leave far more space for the middle column.
How to log in to the online learning system (Oles system login)
In order to log in to the online learning system (Oles), which is managed and provided by the Kolej Poly-Tech MARA (KPTM), users should go to the official website of KPTM – oles.kuptm.edu.
On the main page of the website, you will find a login section. You will be required to enter the information of your personal Oles system account. Namely, you should provide your username and password. Note that, by ticking the "Remember me" option, you agree and enable the online learning system (Oles) to save your login information to approve your login for future use automatically. Also, be wary that you should allow all cookies that the KPTM website uses. Once you enable cookies in your browser, you will complete the login procedure and click on the "Log in" button.
However, if you are not registered for the online learning system (Oles), then you can join the system as a guest. To do so, you will need to click the "Log in as a guest" button since some of the KPTM courses allow guest access.
How to reset the online learning system (Oles) login password
In order to reset your Oles account password, you should immediately click on the "Forgot password" button and wait for the system to redirect to a new page. Then, you must submit your account's username or even your valid email address below. Once you enter any of these account details, you should click on the "Search" button. Suppose the KPTM system finds your account information in the central database. In that case, an email will be automatically sent to your valid email address, with useful instructions on how to get the online learning system (Oles) access again.
