D2L Content

Use the Content tool to access course materials, complete required activities, and monitor your completion progress on topics contained within each course module. To access the Content tool, select Course Content on the course navigation bar.

Using the Content Tool

The Content tool enables instructors to post and organize course content so that information about course expectations, course syllabus, lecture notes, and important dates display to users clearly. The tool has four main areas:

  •  Course Overview
    Provides an overview of the course and information about course expectations. If you do not see a course overview button, your instructor may have not added anything to it.
  •  Bookmarks
    Lists the topics you bookmark. Select the Add Bookmark icon while viewing a topic to add it to your bookmarks list. The number beside the Bookmarks link indicates how many bookmarks you added within the course.
  •  Upcoming Events
    Lists course material due dates, start dates, end dates, and other course events for the next seven days. Dates listed on this page are not exclusive to Content topics; upcoming events include all events within the course from the Calendar tool. The number beside the Upcoming Events link indicates how many upcoming events you have.
  • Table of Contents
    Lists course materials and assignments. The number beside a module listed in the Table of Contents indicates how many topics within the module you need to complete. The number decreases as you work through course materials.
