When asked by an instructor to take a quiz in D2L, knowing the process—as well as what you can and cannot do—is important. Most issues taking a quiz in D2L happen because of unreliable internet connections and a failure to save each question as answered.

When taking quizzes: 
•Make sure you have a reliable internet connection (best from a wired connection) 
•Save each question answer as you go
With D2L you can access online course materials and activities, as well as collaborate with your instructor and other students from your home, office or anywhere with an Internet connection. From your mobile device, stay current with assignment changes as D2L's Mobile Web provides instant access to campus news, announcements, events and deadlines the minute they are posted.
Information on where to find D2L technical support for students may be found on various OCC sites and web pages.

•Your instructor has yet to release the feedback on the assignment submission.
Your instructor may leave feedback on your Assignment Submissions in D2L. There may be reasons why you are not able to see feedback.

You may or may not be able to view or post to a discussion topic for some common reasons:

•Your instructor requires that you first start a new thread in the topic before you can read and reply to other threads by your classmates.
•The dates set for the discussion availability will limit you to when you can view the discussion and post.
•Your instructor locked a discussion forum or topic to prevent new posts from being created, thus making the conversation "read only."
You can download content in D2L for each of the content topics. There are two ways to download content in D2L.

You are also able to download content at the module level, which includes all content topics in the module packaged as a .zip file.
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 may access D2L from a compliant desktop/laptop computer, smartphone or tablet. A variety of devices may be used along with a supported browser and version to ensure the best possible experience in D2L.
D2L is committed to performing key application testing when new browser versions are released. However, due to the frequency of some browser releases, D2L cannot guarantee that each browser version will perform as expected. This article will define each type of supported and non-supported browser and browser version.
