What are people saying?
“I am able to review the ODE videos of my lectures and make changes for future semesters. I do enjoy the flexibility of ODE personnel to accommodate my needs, and the needs of my students. The Learning Management System provides a good platform to post the course materials and to communicate with the students.”
-Dr. Jose Faria, Professor
“Thanks to the courses I’ve taken through FIU ODE, I was able to work full-time and not have to worry about scheduling my shifts at odd times. It provided me with quite a lot of convenience and flexibility with my coursework. Overall, I highly recommend taking ODE courses for the convenience of being able to review complex topics at any time of the day without having to be constrained to class time, for the quality of the material provided, as well as the flexibility to watch videos from home.”
-Frank Pazos, Computer Engineering
“I want to express my sincere gratitude for the support and help given to me by the Office of Distance Education. Your office has helped me whenever the need arose, including after-hours. I have come to view the ODE as indispensable to my role as an educator. Thanks for all you do.”
-Dr. Gustavo Roig, Professor
“I found the ODE staff to be super responsive and friendly. They are highly professional, and go out of their way to help you as quickly as possible no matter how busy they are. I definitely would refer all faculty to the ODE staff. Without them, my class would be very difficult for the students.”
-Dr. Jeffrey Greenfield, Professor
“The ODE team and their services were excellent! They assisted in the development and delivery of my courses online in the LMS. ODE Support Services answered all of my students questions in a timely manner. I recommend students that are unable to attend class physically to take their courses via ODE.”
-Dr. Stylianos Drakatos, Professor
“I work full-time and don’t always have the perfect schedule to attend classes every day. ODE courses let me watch the lectures and take notes when I have free time. This lets me take those pesky courses I haven’t been able to take for semesters because of scheduling issues, ODE puts me that much closer to graduation.”
-Cristobal Cardona, Computer Science
“I work full-time and not all courses are offered at night when I can take them. ODE allows me to access courses online, watch the lectures, and do the homework without having to sit in a classroom.”
-Robert Martin, Mechanical Engineering
“The ODE Program helped me to obtain my Master’s Degree in one of the best Engineering Schools in Florida!”
