D2L level 1 workshop description:
This is a hands-on workshop where you will learn how to set up cell phone/email notifications for your profile (something students can do to), create news items (announcements/text blocks), understand how to affect the Homepage, upload/organize your files/links in the Course Builder, learn about the Dropbox and grading (not the Gradebook) options for Dropbox-submitted assignments. Leaving the workshop, you'll have a better sense of D2L and have worked with the most often-used tools. You will need a D2L account if you want to work on your own class content (or can use a general account).
