Online and Hybrid Courses


You are here

The ITSS Helpdesk offers student support both in person and online for students having technology or administrative issues with their online (i.e., meets only online) or hybrid (i.e., meets online and meets in a UMD classroom) courses.

ITSS does not offer a TA service, but we can help troubleshoot as you:

  • utilize course-related tools like Moodle, Kaltura, or Google Apps to submit course assignments and multimedia projects.
  • seek permission numbers, or other University resources available to on-campus students.
  • install University required software
