Log in to Carmen
This is where you need to go to log in and use Carmen.
Note: If you cannot log in to Carmen, please contact the main campus help desk at 614-688-HELP (4357) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your courses may utilize video conferencing for weekly class sessions. Please cooperate with requests by program staff to sit where you can be seen by faculty and students at other campuses.
Video conferencing utilizes microphone "pods," usually two per classroom and placed so that all students can be heard. These microphones have a center "on" and "off" button that glows red when the microphone is muted. The microphones must remain muted until someone needs to speak at your site because they are very sensitive and pickup all background sounds. Usage will be demonstrated the first night of class.

All General Business Programs courses are designed for broadband (high-speed) internet connections and are available through regional campus labs. If you prefer to complete coursework off-campus, we highly recommend a broadband connection to the internet. Attempting to view video components or listen to audio demonstrations with a dial-up / modem connection will be frustrating, if not completely impossible.
Contact your cable or telephone provider for additional information about broadband options and pricing.
