Student Orientation Course

About this Course:

D2L is a powerful system, but it takes some time and practice to learn. If you are new to D2L, this self-paced orientation gets you started. If you have used D2L before, this orientation helps you to improve your D2L skills. No matter your experience level, this orientation provides you an opportunity to test-drive D2L in a low-stakes setting. You are always welcome to return to this site if you want more practice. 

Note: If you are a new student at the University of Arizona, you will be automatically enrolled in the Student Orientation Course as soon as you register for a class. You will remain enrolled for a year. Once you are automatically unenrolled from the course, you can always register again.
