What are the software and hardware requirements?

Course Pages may include PDFs, Microsoft Word and PowerPoint documents, videos, links to Library resources, and other items. The following requirements should be noted:

  • Adobe Reader is required to view PDFs effectively.
  • Videos can be viewed with Microsoft Windows Media Player, which is installed in all ODU campus computers.
  • To access many Library resources, a username and password are required. For more information, visit the Library's Off-Campus Access page.
  • To access the E-Reserves, students require a course-specific password, which may be obtained from their professor for the course.
