LMS Implementation

Dear Faculty,

After an extensive and in-depth evaluation process by the Learning Management System Evaluation Working Group, the University has chosen Desire2Learn (D2L) as its next Learning Management System (LMS). An email from Dr. Harold Baillie and Dr. Jerry DeSanto regarding this decision was sent on July 1, 2013. The Evaluation Working Group consisted of faculty members recommended by the Technology Advisory Group (TAG), undergraduate and graduate students, and staff members from several campus departments who will be supporting the new LMS.

Access to D2L
Desire2Learn (D2L) is available now via My.Scranton by clicking on the same icon you used to for ANGEL. Next, select the Desire2Learn Learning Environment link. You should see all converted ANGEL courses from Fall 2011 through Fall 2013. ANGEL Learning Object Repositories (LORs) have also been converted to D2L and will appear as regular courses and include the prefix "Personal".

Teaching with D2L
During spring 2014, those faculty who opted in by January 17 will be able to teach in D2L. The only courses accessible to students in D2L will be those of faculty who opted in to teach using D2L by that date.
