Web Conference Classes and Live Online Events

Our live web conference classes use Webex. You can also create your own Webex meetings to connect with your classmates for group work or study sessions. 

Webex is compatible with Windows, Mac, and most mobile devices. Apps are available for Apple iOS, Android, and Windows tablets and phones.

Adobe Connect, another web conferencing tool, is also available and sometimes used at ODU.

 

Blackboard

Blackboard is ODU's learning management system. Your instructors may use Blackboard to deliver course content, host discussion forums, and administer exams. It's compatible with Windows and Mac, and Blackboard mobile apps are available.

 

Personal Learning Environment (PLE)

The PLE is an interface used in flexible online courses, designed by ODU's Center for Learning and Teaching.

 

Portable Media

The option to take courses by portable media is limited to students with specific academic or military experience and training who are enrolling in specific programs.
