D2L Drop-In Workshop @ Zoom

English graduate student Liz Deegan will be hosting a D2L Drop-In Workshop for anyone who needs it, both incoming and advanced students! On Wednesday, September 16th, from 2-4pm, she will have open zoom hours where anyone can drop in for help on some D2L basics. Below are a range of topics she can help with:

  • Making Announcements
  • Organizing your Content
  • Setting up Attendance
  • Setting up your gradebook
  • Creating a Rubric
  • Creating Quizzes
  • Release Conditions for Content
  • & more! Let me know if you need something specific

The event can be a way for folks to get more comfortable with D2L and its capabilities – especially considering we are extra reliant on technology with virtual learning. But also, feel free to drop in and say hi!
