Third-Party Integrations in D2L

This summer, as you prepare your courses for the fall 2021 semester, consider having third-party integrations for textbooks, online activities or exam tools added to D2L Course Spaces.

Before requesting this, carefully read COLI’s policy on these integrations, which can be found here.

These integrations vary widely in quality and the extent to which vendors or providers support students and faculty. COLI and ITS’ first priority is the health and reliability of course spaces and tools used by all faculty, and we will reject any tool we think potentially threatens any or all courses.

Plan to request these integrations as soon as possible. The last date to submit requests will be Thursday, July 15, 2021. COLI’s successful implementation of these integrations depends on the process according to the third-party content providers’ instructions.
