There are two types of home pages in D2L: The My Home page and Course Home pages. Below are screenshots and a brief description of each. Click on the link for each to go to the help pages on each type or click on its option in the menu to the left.
My Home Page - This is the page you land on after logging in. It lists your available courses and includes announcements that the D2L team uses to communicate information about D2L to instructors and students.
Course Home Page - This is the home page of a course you have entered (click on one of the course tiles on your My Home page).
