Getting Started

Are you just beginning an online course? Are you considering taking an online course for the first time? Stop here to get an idea of what you need to know to get started. You might take the Online Course Readiness Assessment first, to help you determine whether an online course would be a good choice for you and suit your personal learning style. Then, have a look at Computer and Skill Requirements, to make sure you and your computer are ready for a course. Don't forget to check the System and Browser Requirements for Desire2Learn, the campus course management system, since all online courses are delivered using Desire2Learn. Once you are registered for a course, make sure to read Getting Started with D2L.
