D2L: Desire2Learn

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.

D2L Essentials: Walkt through this self-paced online course designed to help faculty become familiar with the most commonly used features of Desire2Learn

General Support and Documentation: For 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.

edTPA is an assessment conducted during the student teaching experience.
