UMUC Transitions to New Online Classroom

December 23, 2013

An increasing number of students at University of Maryland University College (UMUC) will take advantage of Learning Experience Online, our new online classroom, during the spring semester.

Get to Know LEO

We've created several resources to introduce you to LEO, so please take a few minutes and learn how to access LEO and where to go for help. We also provide answers to frequently asked questions and video walk-throughs.

The Strengths of the New System

LEO is an intuitive, streamlined environment for you to enter your virtual classrooms from around the world. The system offers many features, including:

  • An interactive calendar for tracking assignments, deadlines, and events

  • Access to your online classroom via smartphones and tablets

  • Audio messaging and other options to get feedback from your instructors

A Phased Approach

We're phasing in LEO and retiring WebTycho, our previous learning system. So some of your courses may be offered in LEO, while others are in WebTycho. But the transition should wrap up in the fall.
