How will I attend class?
All University of Oregon classes will be taught remotely for all of spring term. Sports Product Management students will use their University of Oregon Zoom accounts to attend class throughout spring term. Please use Zoom to attend remotely.
What do I need to do to be counted as present during class?
Faculty members understand that increased flexibility for attendance is required during this time and that many of you have increased responsibilities and unpredictable schedules. We do ask that you log in and participate in each class. We also remind you to watch the recordings when live attendance is not possible. It is okay if you need to briefly turn off your video to attend to something during a class. Expect that faculty members with attendance or participation polices will modify those so that attendance is not counted in grades and participation points can be made up or waived.
What if I know I must miss the livestreamed class session?
If you know you will be absent from a virtual session, please let your instructor know, just as you would if you were missing an in-person class.
Will class recordings still be available on Canvas?
I already have a Zoom account. Do I also need a special UO Zoom account?
Yes, for reasons related to the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), all students must use their UO Zoom accounts to participate in class. Please be aware that, going forward, you may not be able to use your private Zoom account to participate in most or all classes. Best practice: Activate your UO Zoom account before you need it for class!

Do I need special equipment for Zoom?
You’ll need a computer with a camera and microphone—just like if you were using Webex to attend class remotely. You’ll also need a high-speed internet connection.
Our Portland Facility
Can I use the Sports Product Management facility to study on my own or have a team meeting?
Given Governor Brown’s recent Stay Home, Stay Healthy order, we strongly recommend that you plan on meeting virtually using Zoom or another conferencing application of your choice.
How can I access my textbooks?
The University of Oregon library has scanned the first few chapters of each of your textbooks and they are available in Canvas.
Is the program switching to pass/fail grading for spring term?
Students will continue to receive letter grades for their courses. We are not switching to pass/fail.
