D2L New Student Orientation

This self-paced orientation provides a brief introduction to D2L. It answers questions about navigating a course site and the different tools instructors may use (e.g., Assignments, Discussions, etc.) and gives you a chance to practice in a low-stakes setting. You are always welcome to return to this site if you want more practice.
