What are people saying?

“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

“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

“The ODE Program helped me to obtain my Master’s Degree in one of the best Engineering Schools in Florida!”

-Ligia Jurado, MS Environmental Engineering
