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.

Training Sessions: Training for all College of Education adjunct, part-time and full-time faculty is available from the Center for Educational Technology.

Consultation: To speak to our COE technology consultant about using D2L in your course, contact Sarah Brown at or call 773-325-2461.


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.

CoE's Integrative Knowledge ePortfolio: Check the IKE pages for information about the pilot program as well as training resources and events.

edTPA is an assessment conducted during the student teaching experience. For this assessment, teacher candidates are required to create video clips of instruction, lesson plans, student work samples, analyses of student learning and teacher candidate reflective commentaries for a learning segment and submit these components using a Digication electronic portfolio to Evaluation Systems, an outside agency that is a group of Pearson Publishing.
