Spark New Teaching Ideas

As you prepare your course for a new term, you may wish to reflect on new methodologies or ways of approaching your course. Here are some resources to spark new ideas.

Pre-term D2L Tips

You may need to search for and pin your class for future terms to your D2L homepage, as new courses are not displayed automatically.

Log in to D2L and Pin Your Classes to Homepage

If you’re using D2L, it’s simple to copy your course content and settings from a previous term into a new term. You can then make any necessary updates in the course for the new term, without affecting the prior term’s course settings.

Copy Materials from Another D2L Course

Then you can make updates to your course. In addition to updating due dates, you might make small or significant updates to content, discussions, quizzes, assignments, or even grades.

Set Up Content for Your Course

Set Up a Discussion Area for Your Entire Class

Create a New Multiple Choice Quiz

Don’t forget to activate your course at the start of the term. Students won’t be able to get into your D2L course site if you haven’t activated it!
