Take a Break from Your Busy Schedule

D2L Update

 

On August 8, D2L at Canisius will be getting a few new screens for quiz construction and an easier-to-use “question pool” alternative to random sections.  If you use quizzes in D2L, these new features will be fairly intuitive to figure out.   You can still opt out of these new screens, at least until December, but we think you will find them quicker to use than the old screens and random section operation.

If you haven’t tried building and using quizzes in D2L, now is a good time to consider it.  Click here to read the Center for Online Learning’s (COLI’s) latest blog and to see a new video tutorial, which shows how to set up a simple, low-stakes quiz for your students.
