Seamless Discussions Experience: To promote engaging learning experiences, the updated Discussions tool encourages learners to engage in dialogue by providing a more natural and fluid user experience. Learners can participate in discussions directly from their course content without needing to switch applications, view a topic rubric from within a discussion to help them understand how they are being assessed, or easily send an email or page to a classmate by simply hovering over a user's profile.
Optimized Content Experience: Recognizing that a significant amount of time is spent on developing course content and grading assignments, this latest release offers options to save time on day-to-day tasks. The introduction of HTML templates provides instructors with rich, pre-defined templates to choose from when creating new course resources within Learning Environment, allowing them to focus on the content, not the presentation. The Desire2Learn content templates are designed to meet accessibility and mobility best practices to help instructors meet and exceed the requirements for learners of all types (e.g. supporting screen readers and other assistive technology) and using any device. The process of grading and providing feedback on assignment submissions has also been significantly streamlined via new offline grading enhancements made to the Desire2Learn dropbox tool, including simplified assignment mark-up capabilities.
Learners Receive Employment Support
ePortfolio for Life: Employers today are more interested in understanding what learners have accomplished, not just the degree they have attained. With ePortfolio and myDesire2Learn, graduates can now continue to develop rich portfolios and build upon them after school. Learners can move their existing school content and personal artifacts, such as learning experiences and achievements, to the cloud so they can take their ePortfolio with them after graduation -- like an interactive resume. All learners receive 2 GB of free storage with myDesire2Learn.
