Using D2L Communications Tools: Beginning

Wednesday, September 18, 2013, from 11:00am to 12:30pm
Engineering and Physical Sciences Building

*Getting Started with D2L is a prerequisite to these workshops.

Want to learn more about the various ways to communicate with students in D2L? This in-depth, 90 minute hands-on workshop will explore powerful D2L tools to enhance communication between you and your students including:

  • News
  • Calendar
  • Surveys
  • Email
  • Discussions
  • Groups

We will also cover ways in which online and web-enhanced courses might utilize these tools differently.

Beginning will cover the basics of each of these tools and when to use them--how to create a News or Calendar item, a Discussion or a Survey, create basic Groups and send an Email.

Advanced will go in greater depth for each of these tools, including adding graphics/pizazz to your News items, and higher level options for Discussions, Surveys and Groups.

Not sure which level to sign up for? If you are currently using the News, Calendar, Survey and Groups tools, then opt for Advanced. If you're not using some or any of these tools, then sign up for Beginning.
