Camosun College is updating its integration with the Colleague student information system. Faculty and Students will notice changes to some of the D2L communications tools as a result of this update. And there are also some exciting (and long awaited) changes coming up!!
As of January 2021, the D2L Email tool will be limited to student-instructor communications only. Students will no longer be able to communicate with each other through this tool. This change has been made in order to protect students’ personal information.
Students will continue to have access to their historical emails but will not have the ability to reply to or forward those messages.
Students will have access to a new Message tool in D2L that will enable students to connect with other students from within D2L. The Message tool has replaced the existing Pager tool.
Audio Note (the Record Audio button)
Audio Note recording time has now been increased to 5 minutes.
“Chosen names” for students and faculty (also sometimes called “preferred names) will be available in Colleague and will cascade into the D2L Classlist.
Data updates between Colleague and D2L will occur in real time (meaning that if a student registers late, they will immediately have access to D2L and not have to wait until the next day).
An option to export grades directly from D2L to Colleague will be available. More information on this change will be available closer to its availability – stay tuned!
