December 4 – D2L Crash Course
If you plan to spend your Winter Break working on your online or hybrid class, and want a crash course in D2L, this is the workshop for you. The first half will be useful if you’re a beginner, and the second half if you’ve already got the basics down and want to do more. If you plan to attend, please request a D2L course account (no later than 72 hours before the workshop) so you’ll have a place in which to work. Request a course account via the D2L Faculty Request Interface. Once you’ve completed your course account request, it’s important that you check http://d2l.losrios.edu to be sure the course is there prior to attending the workshop. Note – these workshops will be repeated as part of Spring Flex activities on Thursday, January 14th.
