Connecting With Students: Using D2L Communication Tools: Beginning

Tuesday, January 14, 2014, from 9:00am to 10:30am
Engineering and Physical Sciences Building, 127

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

Prerequisite: Getting Started with D2L

This workshop is appropriate for faculty and staff who are not currently using the News, Calendar, Survey and Groups tools.

Free, but registration required.
