Many courses will be taught online using Desire2Learn (D2L). For online courses, you will receive your course material, and submit assignments through D2L. Access to the course will be permitted only after the term begins. Assignments may begin immediately and may be due within a day or two, so it is important to start as soon as the term begins.
How Do I Access D2L?
you login to D2L, your homepage will look like this:
Click on the arrow next to My Courses to see
a list of your courses. If you do not see your class listed under My Courses before
the first day of class, do not worry. Per SDBOR policy, instructors can
optionally allow access to a course up to 30 days prior to the official start
date of the course, as reflected in Registration Self Service. This access
period is designed to allow students to log into the course and orient
themselves to its structure, and to resolve access, procedural, or technical
issues prior to the start of the semester. Students are NOT required to access
any course prior to the start of the semester. This access period is merely
provided as a convenience.
If you do not have
access to a course on the start date of the course, first contact the
instructor of the course, not the campus help desk.
To access a D2L course,
click on the course under My Courses:
Click on syllabus to see a list of required
college textbooks/materials, the attendance and grading policies, and
assignment due dates. If your class is held in a classroom, your professor may
give you a copy of the syllabus on the first day of class.
Access to the course
