- Learning Commons: the concept of the traditional library is changing to include technology, online tools and spaces for collaboration and exploration.
How we use D2L
CBe-learn students have access to a variety of tools through which they can contact their teachers, and classmates. These applications are secure and can be accessed only through the use of a password.
The Discussion areas within Desire2Learn (D2L), allow students to contact teachers with questions, as well as contact other students when working collaboratively. This tool is organized into forums and topics.
The Dropbox within D2L gives the student a place to deposit completed work for marking and to access assessed, returned work from the teacher. The Dropbox sorts assignment submissions by user and keeps track of submission date and time, and any feedback associated with the assignment.
Lockers are areas within D2L where students can upload and store files. All files are confidential and can only be accessed by the person to whom it is assigned unless the user chooses to make them public. Using this tool allows the user to store and access information from a central and stable location.
