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.
Your instructor will use the Content tool to provide course materials and activities for your course. Content is an important area for accessing and viewing course materials. The types of course materials posted by your instructor may contain a variety of different types of file formats and also link to other areas within the course. The content area may include important items for you to access, such as: a Syllabus, Assignments, PowerPoint Lectures and links to videos or websites.
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 include Discussions for you to participate in for your course. There are multiple ways to access Discussions in D2L. Discussions may be accessed from the navigation bar in your course or you may find that your instructor has included a link to a Discussion within the Content Modules. This enables you to access a Discussion from the Content area.
