1:30-2:30pm Stable Linking and Accessibility
Although many understand the value of sharing online library resources such as e-journal articles, e-book chapters, or streaming media in D2L or other course-related materials, the process is not intuitive or transparent. To complicate matters, copyright compliance and licensing agreements require appropriate stable links for integrating of proprietary content in a course. This Stable Links for Electronic Resources workshop will guide participants through integrating journal articles, e-book chapters, or streaming media into their course(s). Instructions for creating stable links in various platforms will be provided and participants will gain hands-on experience in successfully integrating stable links into D2L and other course-related materials.
2:30-3:30 pm D2L Basics for Instructors
This informational webinar will cover the basics of setting up your course in D2L Brightspace. It will give an overview of the interface and best practices for setting up tools for assessment and engagement, adding and organizing course materials, and communicating with students. Specific tools include Grade Book, Assignments, Quizzes, Discussions, Announcements and more.
