The DePaul University Library will be migrating the Library's Web site to the SharePoint platform this summer, with an expected launch on August 28, after the end of the summer session. Most major library systems will continue to operate unchanged as will the structure of our site during this migration, so if you are familiar with how our current site is organized, you will find the new one similar in almost every respect.
The Library wants faculty to be especially aware that our URLs will change when we migrate, so with the exception of the Library Homepage, all other URLs beginning with library.depaul.edu/ will need to be updated in your course materials and D2L.
Starting July 25th, the Library will make the new Web site available to faculty and students at special locations in the Richardson and Loop Campus libraries. More information on the specifics will be communicated closer to that time. Please contact the Library's Coordinator for Web Services, M Ryan Hess, if you have any questions.
Dave Lee (at Pearson) shared a useful video with me that explains how to integrate Desire2Learn with Pearson MyLab. We will be experimenting with the plugin on our test instance of D2L, and plan to make this live later in the year.
- Import of a MyLab course should be done before students are enrolled in the MyLab.
- Once the course is integrated with the D2L course, students who are enrolled in the D2L course will then be prompted for an access code the first time they click on a MyLab link in the D2L course.
- Once they register their access code, they will have single sign on access to the MyLab resources from within the D2L course.
