What is D2L?

Short for Brightspace by D2L (formerly known as Desire 2 Learn), D2L is our learning management system or LMS. To access it, go to lms.gru.edu and log in with your usual NetID and password.

D2L Video Tutorials

I took some time to collect these video turorials from D2L’s YouTube channel.  I sorted them according to a typical instructional design and teaching sequence, so you can easily find what you are looking for. I also noted the duration parenthetically, so you can tell how much time it will take to watch each video you identify as being useful.

Feel free to schedule a convenient appointment via my Book Now page, to address your specific training or service need.

If you should have an urgent D2L troubleshooting need and not be able to get in touch with me or my ISA counterpart in your college, you can call:
