I’m trying to register in a CUOL course. The V section is full but there is room in the VOD section. Why can’t I sign up?

The V section is the credit section of the class itself. The VOD section is an added service, with no credit value, that gives Video On Demand access to students in that class. There may be space in the VOD section, but you can’t take it without already being registered in the credit section (V). If the V section is full, you won’t be able to register in either one.

I’m trying to add the Video on Demand (VOD) service, but I’m getting an error. Why?

You must choose the VOD section that matches the course section you are in. For example, if you are in section “T” add section “TOD;” if you are in section “A”, add section “AOD.”

The other possibility is that you are not currently enrolled in a course where VOD is applicable. Please make sure your course is eligible with a Video on Demand section.

Why is my class time “TBA” or “unscheduled”? How do I find out when it is?

CUOL sections don’t have an assigned time in Carleton Central as students can view their lectures in a number of ways and can often choose their time. This means the class does not appear at a fixed time in the timetable.

If the CUOL section is based on a recorded class, you can find out when that class occurs by looking in the Carleton Central class schedule for the on-campus section. There will be a note beside this section saying “this section recorded for CUOL.”

I’m a University of Ottawa student taking a course as part of a shared program. I can’t register for the Video On Demand service in Carleton Central. How do I add it?

Contact CUOL and ask us for the Video On Demand service. It will be added and you will need to pay the VOD charge through your Carleton University student account. We will need a Carleton student number. To get one and to get cuLearn access, contact Graduate Studies.
