D2L Student Tutorials


Many of the tutorials below were created with past versions of Brightspace by D2L. As we are now on D2L's Continuous Delivery schedule, we receive an updated version of D2L every month (with no downtime) rather than one major upgrade per year. Therefore, although many of the tutorials below may still be very similar to current procedure, you may find it most helpful to view the learner-centered instructional videos provided directly by D2L at the link below.
