D2L: Desire to Learn

D2L is our learning management system for all university courses. Faculty can post course content, readings, assignments, assessments and grades in D2L. Students can access course content, communicate with faculty and classmates, engage in discussions, submit assignments, take exams and access grades online.

Documentation. For written documentation and videos about how to use D2L, see DePaul's Teaching Commons.

Digication is our e-portfolio platform that is used for various purposes. Our students use Digication to build Integrative Knowledge ePortfolios (IKEs), and our faculty use it to create their own professional portfolios and to manage their work for their annual merit review.
