TechSmith Knowmia (TSk) allows users to upload videos in an MP4 format.
You may want to change the title of your video in Techsmith Knowmia, or add a description. Both of these actions can be performed in the Edit Details tab.
If you are enrolled in multiple courses at OCC, it may be helpful to create a TSK subfolder within a top level folder, so you can organize your videos per course.
You can create a folder in TechSmith Knowmia to organize your videos. For instance, if you are teaching five courses, you can create a folder for each course.

You can send emails to class members or your instructor from the Classlist in D2L. You may use this feature as an option to logging into your OCC student email account in order to send an email message. The D2L system is a "send-only" system which allows instructors and students to send email from D2L, thus emails sent to you from D2L can be accessed and read from your OCC student email account. Lastly, in order to send emails from D2L, you must have an active OCC student email account.
You can download content in D2L for each of the content topics. There are two ways to download content in D2L. Topics may be downloaded as an individual file to use outside of D2L for purposes such as reviewing when studying. You are also able to download content at the module level, which includes all content topics in the module packaged as a .zip file.
Your instructor may use Date Restrictions for Content to control when a module or topic is available for you to access. This means that modules and topics may only be available during a specific range of time. Instructors may also set up Due Date deadlines for modules and topics. Due dates are different than date restrictions. Check with your instructor first regarding any questions about specific due dates. Another way your instructor controls access to content is by using Release Conditions.
Information on where to find D2L technical support for students may be found on various OCC sites and web pages.
After you log into D2L, you'll find yourself on the D2L My Home page. Found at the top of D2L's My Home page is the Minibar. It contains the tools to help you navigate the D2L system or search for your D2L courses, as well as update your D2L profile, notifications and account settings.

Your instructor uses Announcements to communicate with you throughout the semester. You will see Announcements when you access your course site. You may choose which announcements you want to view by using the "dismiss" and "restore" features.
You can participate in discussion in one of two ways: by posting a new thread to a discussion topic or by replying to a thread that a student or your instructor has posted. To keep track of new activity, you can also subscribe to a discussion and receive updates by email or text message immediately or as a daily email summary.
