Building a Better D2L – New Enhancements for Summer 2021
The eLearning Department is happy to announce four new enhancements added to D2L for the Summer 2021 semester.
First the D2L Assignments creation experience has been enhanced with a new, optimized interface that focuses on the most used parts of the assignment creation process with advanced features available under dropdown menus on the side. This reduces scrolling and speeds up the creation process. The evaluation experience for D2L Assignments has also been enhanced with an updated interface.
Second, a new Activity Feed is made available to be added to course home pages in D2L, providing an interactive wall experience for Instructors and students. This allows for a more social media-like experience for D2L announcements and course updates. Instructors can moderate the comments in the Activity Feed to ensure a healthy conversation in posts as well as add direct links to course activities in D2L.
Third, a new Accommodations feature is available within the D2L Classlist, allowing Instructors to apply D2L Quiz timing accommodations for individual students who require extra time for quizzes. This allows Instructors to set a timing accommodation for a student that applies to any timed quiz that the student takes in their course.
And fourth, the HTML editor found throughout D2L has received an updated interface to better align with other areas of D2L courses, creating a more consistent user experience.
As always, please feel free to contact the eLearning Department at any time for assistance with D2L.
