    - Students who unavoidably miss a class or need to review a lecture can view their class on a computer in the Learning Commons during our normal operating hours of Monday through Friday, 8am to 10pm, and Saturday, 8am to 5pm. Headphones are provided, but you may bring your own headphones if you prefer.
    - Students can access archived classes on the web at ODU's Distance Learning/Online Class & Event Launch page at http://dl.odu.edu/video/online-class. Under the Web Conference Courses heading, click on the Web Conference Course Launch Pages link, then select your class and log in with your MIDAS ID and password.
    ****Remember that interaction with your instructor is a large part of the learning process and that some instructors prohibit viewing recorded class sessions. Viewing a recording should primarily be a review strategy or a last resort if you must miss a class.
