  • Getting Started

    Are you a new faculty member to MSUM? Or, have you always taught face-to-face classes but are interested in hosting all or part of your course content online? If so, review the following steps to get started.

    Step 1. Request Your D2L Teacher Account and Development Course

    Request your Teacher account and development course on Desire2Learn using the D2L Development Course Request Form. The request form is located on the D2L Request Forms page. You can request a 'devel' course for each of your courses.

    The 'devel' course is used as your work area and course archive. Students are not enrolled in your 'devel' course.

    Step 2. Request your D2L Course Shell for the Coming Semester

    Request your course shells for the coming semester using the CourseCreator Form. The request form is located on the D2L Request Forms page.

    The D2L course shell will be loaded with your student classlist within 24 days of the first day of the semester. The course shell is where you host your class during the semester.

    Step 3. Build Your Course

    Refer to the tutorials on the Faculty tab for instructions on using D2L.
