Classroom-recorded courses

Classroom-recorded courses use lectures that are recorded during the on-campus section of the course. Those lectures are then made available through Video On Demand (VOD) or online streams to local and distance students. This means that recorded classes are as close as possible to being in the classroom – students can see the lectures, listen to classroom discussions and hear questions and answers just as they are delivered to fellow students.

Ways to access classroom-recorded courses

CUOL courses are available to students anywhere in the world unless there is a required on-campus element, such as a lab.

Recorded courses are available as a live stream on the CUOL website as the class is being taught, as well as by a web channel with alternate viewing times. There is also a free viewing room on campus where students have 24/7 access to VOD lectures on numerous viewing stations at no charge.

Our Video on Demand (VOD) service is our most flexible means of accessing recorded lectures and is by far the most popular. Through VOD, registered students can view or download lectures at their convenience from anywhere. Lectures will usually be available within one business day of their broadcast, if not sooner. Students will also have access to all previous lectures for the duration of the term.

There is a charge to the student for this service. Students arrange for Video on Demand service when registering in a recorded course section by adding the TOD or VOD section to their registration in addition to the CUOL section. Students in the in-class section that is being recorded can also add the service by adding the matching “OD” section. For instance, if the in-class section is section A, they add AOD. The charge is added to their students account.

Web-based courses

Web-based courses are designed to be delivered exclusively online through cuLearn. There is no on-campus section like there is with a recorded course – instead, a web course is made up of elements such as presentations, required readings, video clips and weekly assignments and activities. There are many resources on campus to assist with creating web-based courses, from course designers to video production studios and support.
