Join Alan Ackmann for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Desire2Learn: Advanced Techniques.
- [Alan Ackmann] This course has covered some of the trickier, more obscure parts of D2L, but that doesn't mean we've covered everything. So here are some other resources. First, if you want to expand your bag of tricks even more, check out my other courses: How to Teach with Desire2Learn 2016, which covers fundamentals, and Teaching Online with Desire2Learn, which is a deep dive into D2L in an online context. For additional D2L materials, the best place to go is right to the source. At this URL, you can find lots of support articles about D2L and how it operates.
It's developed and sponsored by the organization responsible for D2L. I know the link doesn't have D2L in it, but D2L is rebranding itself to a much more expansive learning management system known as Brightspace, and D2L is one dimension of the services. Finally, for more customized support, consider exploring your organization level technology resources such as IT departments and internal training. Many schools set up their own versions of D2L, enabling or disabling certain features. If something in your setup doesn't align with what we've done here, your school's support staff might be the ones to contact.
And that's all we've got! So thanks for watching! I hope the material we've covered enhances your own teaching and your students' learning as well.
