D2L Brightspace

Students taking online classes and their instructors use the D2L (Desire to Learn)  Brightspace Learning Environment for course content.

Instructors can insert a librarian widget in their course page so that students can easily access their librarian with just one click.

If faculty need face-to-face assistance with D2L, we direct them to a Faculty Resource Center or Campus Resource Center at one of our physical campuses.

Assistance is also available by calling 206-2342.
