Media Services Brightspace by D2L Workshops
All workshops are conducted in the Multimedia Lab in A1249 across the hall from Media Services. Seating is limited to 12 participants per workshop.
Orientation Information Sessions
To introduce faculty to Brightspace by D2L (formerly branded Desire2Learn) several 1½-hour “Getting Acquainted” orientation sessions are scheduled during the ninth and tenth weeks of the semester. There are 22 sessions so there are several options to fit your schedule.
Register for any of the times listed below and take a tour of the system. You will get an overview of the learning environment's user interface and also a brief introduction to a few tools instructors use in D2L for enhanced courses such as News for announcements, Content for organizing course materials, the Dropbox for assignment submissions, and Grades. In addition we’ll discuss course “shell” management and how the system works with your classes that are created automatically with the integration of the college's Ellucian Student Information System (SIS/KishSOS).
This is your opportunity to get oriented to, ask questions about, and take a tour of D2L. Don’t miss out!
