Q: I’m new to OSU! Where can I get additional training for Carmen?

A: The Office of Distance Education and eLearning provides a wonderful Start of Term Checklist, which lists various resources from which you can get more information regarding using Carmen. You are also welcome to email us at CVMOTL@osu.edu and/or stop by VMC 0076A for help.

It is always a good practice and your responsibility to check whether you have answered all questions before submission.
