New Workshop highlight: Course Design for Integrating Online Technology into your F2F course

One of our exciting new workshops for this May/June is called Course Design for Integrating Online Technology into your Face-to-face Course.  The description of this workshop goes something like this:

In this workshop we will showcase and discuss examples of how various online tools (including those in D2L) have been integrated successfully into face-to-face courses. Bring your questions, and your own examples to share with the group.

This workshop is for you if you are thinking about adding some D2L component(s) to supplement or enhance your face-to-face course, but aren’t sure where to begin.  Or if you have already started using D2L for some things, but aren’t sure where to go from where you are.  It’s also for you if you are wondering what kind of online tools, aside from D2L, might support your students in achieving specific course outcomes, or if you are looking for new ways to deliver some of the activities in your course.

Come with your questions and ideas, and be ready for a dynamic discussion and showcase of examples for you to try out!  Note that examples and (information) will be posted on our D2L Community of Practice site which you will be given access to after attending the session.

D2L Tip of the week: The D2L On-Demand Training course

If you are a Camosun faculty member using D2L to support your course, you can get help using D2L tools anytime you need it.  Just log into D2L ( and look at the My Courses widget on the My Home page.  Click on the Student button (see below), and you will see our D2L v10.3 On-Demand Training course site.

My Home - Accessing On-Demand Training site

In the D2L v10.3 On-Demand Training course site, you will find videos and documentation giving step-by-step instructions on how to use all the tools in D2L.  To find these videos, click on the On-Demand Training Tools drop-down menu, and select Training Videos (see below).  Then explore.

Finding On-Demand Training Videos

Remember, we still recommend that you attend our D2L workshops or arrange for a one-on-one consult to learn the tips and tricks for using D2L and its various tools.  But the On-Demand Training course is great when you need a quick reminder of how to use a tool at 2:00 am when there is no one around to help you!

Note that if you do NOT see the D2L v10.3 On-Demand Training course in the My Courses widget, contact, and you will be set up with access.
