Navigating Inside a Desire2Learn Course

  • The primary navigation tool for a course is the navbar, which is always located at the top of the screen and displays links to the tools available in your course.

    Within each tool there are tool menus to navigate to different sections and pages, and tabs to switch between sections within a page.



    Desire2Learn (D2L) makes extensive use of icons to initiate tasks and actions. To find out what an icon does, hover your mouse over it; an explanation appears above the icon.



    D2L often presents information in the form of interactive lists that you can search and sort. When a list is long, items are split across multiple pages so that the list loads quickly; you can jump to any page and change how many items appear on each page.

    Note: If you select items in a list and move to another page within the list, the items are no longer selected even though they are part of the same list.
