How can I add links and widgets to the D2L navbar and homepage?
Adding other tools (links) to the D2L navbar can make navigating convenient for you and your students—for example, Attendance, Online Rooms, and others.
The course home page can be customized through the addition of widgets.
The course home page is designed to provide students immediate access to
news and announcements and upcoming course deadlines. Typical widgets
used on the course homepage are the News, Calendar, and Role Switch.
However, additional widgets can be added.
You can find the documentation for Adding Links to the Navbar and Adding a Widget to a D2L Course Homepage on our D2L Brightspace webpage.
