Online Campus Student Orientations and Tutorials

Technology and Communications is offers all students the opportunity to participate in on an Online Campus Orientation at the beginning of every semesters. These orientations are designed for individuals that have never worked with our learning management system - Desire2Learn (D2L).  Although an orientation to the system is not required, these are highly recommended if you are taking any online courses and to help you succeed.

If you are unable to attend any of the orientation sessions we have provided asynchronous videos & tutorials to help you navigate and use the tools within the system. These can be found under the Student Tutorial section of this community.

All Orientation sessions are archived and several will be available for you to review at your convenience. If you wish to review an archived session please, click on the link(s) provided under Orientation Archives on the left side of your screen.
