  • Engaging Students in D2L – Engaging Students in D2L is a self-paced training, designed to provide an overview of the D2L tools and third party integrations, available to Instructors and students, that can be used to support engagement practices in a D2L course(s). The training provides a technical overview and demonstration of tools, as well as pedagogical strategies for incorporating tools into a D2L course(s) to enhance engagement and support learning. The training focuses on three types of engagement, including Instructor-to-Student Engagement, Student-to-Student Engagement, and Student-to-Content Engagement.
  • Reviewing a Course in D2L – Reviewing a Course in D2L is a self-paced training, designed to help course reviewers become familiar with the CMS Course Review process, including the CMS Course Review Scorecard.

While course design, curriculum, assessment, and pedagogy are not a one-size-fits-all approach, there are common elements that should be present in all courses. This training will identify the common elements a course reviewer should look for, as well as provide reasoning and examples for these elements. Please note that the Reviewing a Course in D2L training is an advanced training. To request access to this training, please submit an email request to lcc_elearning@lcc.edu.
