Online and Distance Learning

The College of Human Sciences Online and Distance Learning program provides support to students taking online and distance courses and the faculty who teach them.

Services include:

  • Student resources, advising, and administrative support
  • Course development, production, delivery, and support
  • Technology support for online/distance course delivery and communication tools


Panopto was updated over break, so if you open the old version you will be prompted to download and install the new version. To find the install file, log in to Panopto at (sign in using Blackboard Learn). The download link is in the upper right of the screen. If you do not have administrative rights, H Sci IT support can do this for you or you can contact Ann in ODL.

Panopto Recordings from Previous Semesters

If you copied a course in Blackboard Learn that includes Panopto recordings, the settings on the Panopto server will need to be updated to reflect the new semester. If this is not done, no one in the current class will be able to see the videos. Contact Ann in ODL for help in updating settings.
