FAQs: Learning Experience Online General Questions

What is Learning Experience Online, also known as LEO? +

Learning Experience Online is the online classroom at UMUC. It replaced WebTycho, our previous learning management system, which was retired in 2014.

What are some of LEO's key features? +

An interactive calendar makes it easy to track assignments, deadlines, and course events. You'll know exactly where you stand in a class with an enhanced progress tool, and audio messaging and other features enable you to easily receive feedback from your instructor and classmates.

Can I use the online classroom on my smartphone or tablet? +

Yes. You can access the online classroom on your smartphone and tablet.

Does UMUC offer an application for my smartphone or tablet? +

We don't have a UMUC mobile application at this time. You can use the web browser on your mobile device to access the online classroom.

Does the online classroom calendar show events for one class or all classes? +

The default setting for your calendar is to show events and activities for all of the classes you are taking. You can filter for a particular class by clicking into a detailed calendar view and selecting it from a drop-down menu.

Does the online classroom have any hardware or software requirements? +

Please ensure that your system meets LEO's system requirements and your web browser has Java software and cookies enabled. The online classroom requires both. Also, please install Adobe Flash Player. This plug-in for your web browser will enable you to use audio- and video-recording features in the online classroom.

What happens if there is a LEO system outage? +

As with any system, there may be outages. We'll notify you several weeks in advance of any scheduled system outage or maintenance to LEO. We'll also notify you if there's an unplanned system outage. In either case, notifications will be posted on the Help Center. LEO also has an alerts feature. We'll post notifications there, too.

Is there a file size limit for assignment submissions to LEO? +

There is no file size limit for assignment submissions in LEO. If you submit large assignment files (e.g., several GBs) on a slow internet connection, you may encounter a browser timeout issue due to the large file size. This is not related to any restriction imposed by LEO.
