December 2020 Online Workshops from MSU IT

In December we will focus on D2L. This is so that we can help instructors get up and running for the Spring Semester. We have two, hour long sessions planed that will cover the basics of D2L and some more advanced features. D2L is a powerful tool, with a lot of features and there isn’t a way to cover everything in depth in just two hours. However, these workshops will give you a good place to start, and we will share some resources that you can use to go into more depth with the tool. We are also available for consultation, if you would like one on one support. During each session we will have time to ask questions, both live and in the zoom chat.
