Compressed Video Courses

Compressed Video courses require attendance in specially equipped classrooms. The classes are taught from a designated campus, or originating site.

Computer Requirements

  • Desktop or laptop computer
  • Dedicated internet line (not wi-fi)
  • Web camera

Compressed Video Sites

  • UNO Lakefront Campus - LA 234, 250, SC 2002
  • UNO Jefferson Center - Room 362
  • UNO Avondale - CV Room 174 
  • UNO NCAM NASA/Michoud - Room 257 

Students at remote classroom sites can interact live with students at other classrooms along with the Instructor via television. UNO presently offers Compressed Video courses in the areas of Anthropology, Business Administration, Education, Engineering Management, Geology, Mathematics, Psychology, and Sociology. 

Your Instructor may use an Internet-based course management system such as Moodle to get class materials to you. Be sure to determine if this is the case. If not, ask your Instructor how he/she will deliver materials, tests, homework, etc. to you.

To make the process of taking a Compressed Video class run smoothly, students are requested to:

  • Pay attention to section numbers when registering for courses; 410 - 475 are Compressed Video classes.
  • Observe the “no food, drink or cell phones” policy in the Compressed Video classrooms.

Students with Special Needs

Students with disabilities are encouraged to contact the Office of Disability Services (504-280-6222) and their Instructors to discuss their individual needs for accommodations.
