eLearning Where to get Help Reminders for Winter 2022

As the Winter 2022 term begins, I wanted to remind you of some important information related to D2L, both for faculty and students.   

First, how you contact us for support has changed! If you need help with D2L, Collaborate, or Kaltura, you can now submit a ticket on our eLearning Support Portal. Click Faculty or Student, then select your issue, or click “My Issue is Not Listed.” 

In addition, you can find out more about D2L by opening the following documents: 

Important Things for Faculty to Know about eLearning and D2L at Camosun this Fall!!

Preamble – Who is eLearning?

eLearning is a unit within the Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, with face-to-face offices at Lansdowne and Interurban, and virtual “offices” through Teams or Collaborate. We support the use of Desire2Learn (D2L) Brightspace and other educational technologies available at Camosun College (Kaltura, Camtasia, WordPress, Collaborate). Our eLearning Support team can help you and your students when you have technical issues or questions about D2L or our other technologies. Our instructional designers work with faculty to design and develop online learning opportunities, understand best practices in online pedagogy, set up and manage their D2L courses, explore options for using other online tools to support their teaching, and discuss considerations for integrating those tools into their course design.

Want to know more? Let us know – our contact phone numbers and emails are on page 2!

What is D2L?

  • Desire2Learn (D2L) Brightspace is Camosun College’s learning management D2L enables faculty who are teaching face-to-face, blended, or completely online to deliver content, manage online activities and group collaboration, as well as provide online assessment options for students.
  • Your D2L site can only be accessed by students registered in your course, eLearning staff, and other Camosun employees you request access
  • To get started with D2L, please request a consult with an eLearning instructional You also check the current workshop schedule for upcoming eLearning and D2L learning opportunities.

How are D2L course sites set up?

  • NEW: Every semester, by default, instructors will be provided with a D2L shell for every section of course(s) they teach (regardless of whether they use D2L), as long as they are tagged as the instructor for the course sections in myCamosun. If you are unsure if you are correctly assigned in myCamosun, check with your Chair or the person in your area who is responsible for scheduling. NOTE: If you do not wish to use D2L, you can put a notice up in the course to let students know, or send a request to elearning@camosun.bc.ca listing your courses and sections, and we can hide them.  This request needs to happen each term for each course.
  • Approximately 30 days before the course start of the term, you will have access to your blank D2L course shell (as long as you are listed in myCamosun as the instructor of the course).
  • NEW: As students register for your course, you will see their names appear in your D2L course site Students are added to and dropped from this list as they are registered in, or unenrolled from, the course through myCamosun in real time. Waitlisted students cannot access D2L courses until they are officially registered.
  • Students will have access to D2L course sites they are registered in on the start date of the course (as it appears in myCamosun). Students will then have access to the D2L course site for 20 days after the end date of the course (as it appears in myCamosun).  This is typically the exam period plus a few days.
  • You, as the instructor of the course, will retain access to your D2L course sites unless you arrange with eLearning Support to have them removed from your list of courses in D2L. Permanently deleting a course requires an email from you to eLearning Support (eLearning@camosun.ca) clarifying which courses you wish to have.

If I teach multiple sections in a term but only want one D2L course site (and thus one D2L gradebook) for all my students, what do I need to do?

  • Contact eLearning Support to let them know which sections need to be merged into one course Provide as much notice as possible to eLearning support if you want your course sections merged to ensure they are merged by the first day of class.

What is a DEV (Development) course site, and how do I request one?

  • A D2L DEV course site is a course site that students cannot It is a place where you can build and revise your course site before your live course shells become available to you.
  • A DEV site must be associated with a course you are teaching (for example, if you teach Math 100, you can request a Math 100 DEV site).
  • To request a DEV site for one of your courses, email eLearning Support. To learn more about DEV sites and how they can be used, talk to an eLearning instructional

How do I get access to someone else’s course site?

  • You will need to ask that person to contact eLearning Support and request/give permission for you to be added to their course site, and indicate what level of access you should be given.

Where do I go to get help with D2L?

  • You can ask for help from eLearning Support (eLearning@camosun.ca) or book a one-on-one consult with an eLearning instructional designer (see contact information below).
  • You can come to an eLearning drop-in session or
  • You can also access our D2L On-Demand Training site under My Courses in D2L (when you click on Student) in D2L, or on our eLearning Tutorials site.

How do I log into D2L?

How do I find my courses in D2L?

  • Once you have logged into D2L, you can find a list of all the courses you have access to in the My Courses widget on the main Camosun D2L page, or in the Select a course… menu on the right-hand side of the navigation bar.
  • You can pin courses in the My Courses widget or in the Select a course… menu so that, for example, the courses you are teaching right now always appear at the top of the listings. You can access instructions for this in the On-Demand Training course site, or through eLearning Support.

How do I copy course material from one course to another?

  • Use the Import/Export/Copy Components tool in your D2L course site (under Edit Course). You can access instructions for this in the On-Demand Training course site, or through eLearning Support.

Ally doesn’t change how anything works in your course, and won’t affect your course files. For instructors, Ally provides feedback on how to correct technical accessibility issues with your digital course content. The more technically-accessible learning materials are, the better they will work for students on mobile phones and tablets as well for students who use assistive technologies to access content.

For students, Ally provides “alternative formats” of your Content files, allowing them to choose from a range of options to access content in a file format most appropriate for their device and need.

Attend this info session to learn more about how Ally can support accessibility in your D2L courses.

Introduction to Open Education and Open Educational Resources

Monday, May 10: 1:00-2:30pm

Description: At the heart of the Open Education movement lies the idea that publicly-funded knowledge and knowledge products (textbooks, curricula, lecture notes, tests, assignments, video, images) should be made freely available to the public (including students). As educators dedicated to the creation and transfer of knowledge this idea is appealing. But how does it work? What constitutes Open Education Resources (OER)? How are they licensed? Where can you find them? What are the best ways to use them? In this workshop we will explore how to use Open Education Resources to remove barriers to education.

Using Rubrics to Streamline Your Assessment Process

Part 1 – Tuesday, May 11: 1:00-2:00pm

Part 2 – Tuesday, May 18: 1:00-2:00pm

Description: This is a two part workshop over two weeks: Session 1 addresses the pedagogical theory of rubrics and Session 2 address the practical application in D2L.  Two main themes are explored in the first rubric session: the pedagogical advantage of digital rubrics; and how to build a nuanced and sophisticated rubric.

Some advantages to a well constructed rubric seem obvious – established standards, consistent feedback, and efficiency – other advantages are less obvious – immediacy, considered criteria, and pedagogical renewal. In the first part of this session participants will consider the positive pedagogical impact of a digital rubric.  The second theme of this first day examines the major considerations when building a rubric. Participants will consider categories, gradients, ranking and weighting, iteration, and personalization. Along with a variety of suggestions and tips, participants will be provided a template to start their building their own rubric.

The goal of the first session is to furnish participants with the perspective and tools to craft their own draft rubric between session one and session two.

Session two will provide an overview of how using the Rubric tool in D2L can help to streamline the assessment process, including how to create a rubric in D2L, attach it to various assessment items, and mark student work using the rubric.

Advanced Quizzing in D2L

Description: Picking up from the Introduction to Quizzes, in this workshop we will explore in more depth how to set up Sections for holding text, audio, and video information, Question Pools to allow you to randomize questions from a larger bank, Special Access accommodation settings, using TextAid with Quizzes for accessibility, and some other advanced features.

Working with Master Courses

Thursday, May 13: 1:00-2:30pm

Description: Master courses are an excellent way to ensure consistency in course delivery across multiple sections and increase workload efficiencies for instructors. However, master courses also require annual review and maintenance in order to reap their benefits. This workshop will help course owners assess the current state of their master courses and develop a strategy to ensure the courses are read to go for September. Come to the session with any questions and concerns you have about your course. Workshop participants may want to book a follow-up one-on-one session with an instructional designer for individual training and support.

Introduction to H5P

Friday, May 14: 1:00-3:00pm

Description: H5P technology makes it possible to integrate interactive learning elements into HTML pages in D2L, WordPress, or Pressbooks. H5P applications include formative quizzes (with immediate feedback), flash cards, slide decks, images with clickable hotspots, and interactive videos; see: https://h5p.org/content-types-and-applications for more information. This workshop will introduce you to a range of H5P applications that are commonly used to support teaching and learning. During the workshop you will build some H5P content that you can reuse to support your own courses.

Using the Accessibility Reports in D2L: What should I do first? (And how do I do it?!)

Monday, May 17: 10:00-11:30am

Description: As you add documents, PDFs, webpages, and PowerPoints in D2L course content, you will now receive feedback and Accessibility Reports from Ally on how “accessible” your files are (as defined by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines – WCAG). The more accessible your file format is, the better the experiences for students will be, including students working with mobile devices, tablets and assistive technologies.

In this workshop, we will look at some of the feedback instructors commonly receive from Ally, including what the feedback means and what you can do with it to improve the accessibility of your content. You are welcome and encouraged to share Ally feedback you have received and have questions about.

Description: Do you have a development site or a course offering that is need of clean up? Question libraries that need tweaking or manage files that need organization? This hands-on workshop will cover key best practices surrounding course maintenance and efficiencies in how to manage release dates associated with your course from one central location in D2L (saving you time!).

Enhancing Your Courses with Video: An Introduction to Kaltura

Thursday, May 20: 10:00-11:00am

Description: Kaltura is Camosun College’s streaming media service that offers easy-to-use video management and creation tools that integrate directly into D2L. Think of it as Camosun’s own YouTube service. This means faculty and students now have a place to create, edit, and house their course-related videos from one central location. This hands-on workshop will provide you with a high level overview of the Kaltura tools and get you started with using them in one of your courses. The workshop will be more meaningful if you come with a video to work with.

Going Deeper with Videos and Kaltura

Thursday, May 20: 2:00-3:30pm

Description: If you have dabbled with Kaltura this year, you may be ready to learn more about the service’s capability. This hands-on session will cover advanced Kaltura topics, including video editing and chaptering, editing closed captions, creating video quizzes and linking video quizzes to the gradebook. To get the most of out the session, come prepared with some videos ready to edit and/or develop into a quiz.

Designing for Engagement: Moving Beyond Text and Images

Tuesday, May 25: 10:00-11:30am

Description: Come learn how to transform your content to accommodate a variety of learning styles and abilities. We’ll begin with an overview of the content tool and its functionality to get you started with building content.

Tuesday, June 9: 10:00-11:30 Synchronous Component (in Collaborate)

Description: In a flipped classroom students engage with learning content such as lectures and other materials outside of class to prepare for an active learning experience in the classroom. Join us as we explore how to take this concept into our current fully online world. How can we make the best use of our real time synchronous classes as opportunities for active engagement, by augmenting them with asynchronous learning activities? In this workshop we will demonstrate an example of providing content in advance, and using our synchronous time for active engagement. Come prepared to share your ideas.

Custom Collaborate Workshops

Does your department or team need some custom training on advanced features in Collaborate, such as creating breakout groups, or need strategies to engage students in online synchronous sessions? If so, include your name, contact information, and a brief description of your needs and we will follow up with you.

Re-post from the TRU Digital Detox

Seems a bit lazy, but I thought this was definitely worth the re-post (or re-blog, whatever you call it – let’s call it sharing!)

In this week’s Digital Detox post (if you don’t know about the Digital Detox, check it out), Dr. Brenna Clarke Grey talks about e-proctoring in a post aptly called E-proctoring Sucks, So Why Won’t It Go Away?

The thing I appreciate the most about her post is her comment that while she does think cheating is a problem, she thinks “it’s largely a structural problem, not an individual one,” which I completely agree with.  Automatically assuming students are going to cheat online and forcing them into invasive proctoring solutions is not addressing the larger issue(s) – we need to examine why students cheat (and yes, there are many, many reasons) and think about our institutional role in pushing them there.

So, I encourage you to check out Dr. Clarke Grey’s post, and join in on the discussion!

Digital Detox #3: E-proctoring Sucks, So Why Won’t It Go Away?

Some Changes Coming to Camosun’s D2L

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!!

January, 2021


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.

March, 2021

“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).

Summer, 2021

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!


The tutorial for how to use the Message tool is now available on the eLearning Tutorials at Camosun site.

For more information or questions, contact eLearning@camosun.ca.
