Fall Academic Calendar

NEW for Fall 2014!

Broadcast, televised, and videostreamed classes have been replaced with web-based, high-definition, two-way synchronous web conferencing (WebEx) classes that can be accessed during class meeting times from anywhere that has high bandwidth internet access, using a computer or tablet.

Web conference courses will have a course delivery method of "Web Delivered" and defined day(s) and meeting time(s).

Students will see a "building code" of WC2 (in Hampton Roads), WC5 (in Virginia outside Hampton Roads), WC7 (outside Virginia) or WC8 (outside the US).

Students will still have the option to attend at a site if needed, and will continue to receive local support from the ODU site staff.
