Up and Running with Desire2Learn

with Aaron Quigley

Video: Welcome

(MUSIC). Hi, Aaron Quigley here and welcome to Up and Running with Desire2Learn. Throughout this course, we're going to explore how to build and manage a class inside the Desire2Learn framework. Including structuring content, adding grading rules, and even changing the aesthetic appearance of your Desire2Learn class. As we move throughout these videos, I'll be using a fictional life science class to model the basic Desire2Learn features that would be needed to quickly get a class up and running. I hope you enjoy exploring the dynamic features of the Desire2Learn framework.
