Desire2Learn

Desire2Learn (D2L) is the learning management system used at Benedictine to support web enhanced and blended courses.  (Online programs are supported by a different system.  See National Moser Center for Adult Learning for more information)

D2L workshops for faculty are offered regularly throughout the year.  The Professional Development Coordinator and the Academic Applications Administrator also hold Open Office Hours where faculty can stop by for informal D2L Q&A.  Schedules for the Workshops and Open Office Hours are announced through Benedictine email.
