Instructional Muddy Point Troubleshoot
Do your students have trouble accessing their D2L final exam? Do you have a quiz whose results are not showing up in the gradebook? A test where students had questions about or reported errors with a specific question?
Whatever “muddy point” you may be going through right now, please reach out to me and I’ll be more than happy to assist you with a troubleshoot. To book a FAC-TEACH 3, Instructional Muddy Point Troubleshoot appointment, click on your group:
Posting Final Grades
The following tutorial shows you how to do both.
Start of Spring 2017
Accessing Spring 2017 Courses
Can’t find your Spring 2017 courses in D2L? Log into D2L (lms.augusta.edu) and use the course search box to locate your course. Here’s how:
To find your course, look at your “My Courses” frame and locate the “Search for Courses” field (as shown in the screenshot included). Next, type in “2017-SP-” (representing the year and semester) followed by your course’s prefix and number. For instance, if I were looking for the CTCM 4000 course for Spring 2017, I’d type “2017-SP-CTCM-4000” and then push return on my keyboard.
Tip: Once you access your course, it will stay in your list of 10 most recently accessed courses. If you work with more than 10 courses per semester and/or wish to have a quick way to access a specific course, you can “bookmark” it by going to “Search for a Course” at the top-left of your D2L homepage.
Search for the course using the method described above and click on the pushpin. The course will always be available from the top-down triangle next to “Select a course…” at the top-left corner of your homepage.
Sharing or Crosslisting Courses
- crosslisted or XLS (if they share the same physical space)
- shared or SHD (if they are a mix of face-to-face and web courses/sections or web and web courses/sections)
Courses are crosslisted by the Registrar’s office and shared by your Instructional Systems Analyst. If you need to share sections, fill out this form. To make sure your request is processed in a timely fashion, please place the request a semester in advance.
D2L Course Start Dates
You are beginning to see students enrolled in your course and probably wonder when your students will be able to first see the course. All Spring 2017 courses are set to become visible to students at 12 am on 1/5/2017.
If you wish to have students see the course sooner or later than this default time, you can change the course start by going to Course Admin (top-right corner of your D2L course’s page) > Course Offering Information (it’s the first link at the top of the page) > Start Date (located about halfway through the page).
D2L Course Setup
For D2L tutorials, please visit the D2L page, where you will find a multitude of 1-3 minute video tutorials focsed on the most common functionality in D2L.
