This past weekend Washburn connected our student information system, Banner with Desire2Learn (D2L) so courses, instructor assignments and student enrollments will flow (real time) to D2L for Summer 2013 courses and all Fall 2013 courses. Students will be able to access the course link in MyWashburn for Summer 2013 courses taught in Desire2Learn and be linked to their D2L Homepage until the course starts. When courses begin for Summer 2013, students will then be linked directly into their D2L course from MyWashburn.
Student online training materials will be available on every student’s Desire2Learn Homepage for information on navigation and general use of the Desire2Learn environment.
A total of 136 courses at Washburn University and Washburn Institute of Technology will be taught in Desire2Learn this summer 2013. A total of 84 faculty/instructors at both campuses have chosen to teach in D2L for Summer 2013. To date, we have had a total of 185 faculty/instructors/staff signed up, completed, or currently enrolled in Desire2Learn training to prepare for teaching in this new system.
