If you are a new professor at Canisius, or if you have taught at Canisius for awhile but would like to learn or review essentials of D2L, COLI offers a workshop that’s perfect for this.
In this on-campus training session professors get the very basics of teaching in D2L:
- Upload files so students can get them.
- Organize your course content.
- Set due dates so students can see them (in multiple places.)
- Build a gradebook.
Later, you’ll discover all sorts of other features useful for teaching your classes, in your particular discipline. But this session gets you started using D2L and using the internet to save time and effort teaching. Review the Academic Affairs Faculty Development Resource to see times and locations for these and other training events.
