There are many videos available from D2L to guide you in learning the various tools. While it is helpful to become familiar with the YouTube channel where the videos are provided, we wanted to make sure that you have quick links to the specific tools you would come across in a basic course shell. Each link below connects to a Playlist that covers all aspects of the tool.

The Discussion Boards provide opportunity for students to interact with each other, and the instructor, around the content of the course. It's a great place to discuss important issues related to the class, and to communicate deeper thinking around the content.
When it comes time to assess your students, you'll want to provide a place for them to submit assignments, and allow for straight forward grading processes.
