Math Dept Course Hubs

A Course Hub is a central repository of resources for a course, including the course outline, online lessons, help and support materials, and more.  It is intended for both students and faculty.  Although Course Hubs are hosted on the OpenLab, they are publicly available and for use by all faculty (whether using Blackboard, OpenLab, or another platform).

NOTE: Course Hubs are designed to be a resource repository of information and are not intended for direct communication between students and faculty.  If you’re interested in using the OpenLab with your students in your own section, check out our Model Courses.

Welcome!  If you’re interested in using the OpenLab for your Math courses, this is a great first stop.  It can be a little daunting to get a new course site up and running.  Model Courses are designed to help you out by providing pre-built course sites for many popular Mathematics Courses (currently MAT 1275/1275CO/1372/1375/1475/1575/2680), complete with resources and sample assignments,  structured to support distance learning.
