Technology Tuesday: D2L Training
There is a change to the previously published description for the July 20th Technology Tuesdays session - the updated session will be a repeat of the July 6th session. No new material will be covered. You are free to attend on the 20th again if you attended on the 6th July (which may work as a useful review).
Melissa Koenig of FITS has very kindly agreed to provide this specialized D2L (Desire2Learn) training. Please RSVP as soon as possible to save your spot.
- July 20th - D2L: How It Works
- Location: CNA 405 (computer lab – bring your DePaul ID for building access)
- Time: 9 – 11 a.m.
- Description: Desire2Learn (D2L) is the new Learning Management System (LMS) that DePaul will be adopting. This session will provide you will a thorough understanding of how the various elements in D2L operate. You will see how existing courses have been successfully copied from Blackboard to D2L.
This session will take place in CNA 405. CNA 405 is a computer lab – you will have the opportunity to test out the new system. Refreshments will be served.
D2L is the new learning management system that is scheduled to replace Blackboard at DePaul in January of 2011. D2L has been rigorously tested, and provides a better system to support Commerce’s mission and strategy. However, it is a new system and some training is required to capitalize on the improved functionality and features.
Commerce is by far the largest user of Blackboard at DePaul – over 84% of Commerce courses use Blackboard in some respect. These sessions (and future training) will be of use to all faculty and staff in Commerce. Space is limited at this session – to ensure your place please RSVP at:
