As a registered student, you can login to your live ODUOnline courses with any standard web browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, or Chrome. You'll need a webcam and a headset (or speakers and microphone). We recommend using a headset with a mic to help you concentrate on class.

Class Etiquette

We want all students to have an opportunity to listen, learn, and participate in ODUOnline classes. To make this happen, we ask our students to follow these guidelines.
