Spring 2015 classes start
Monday, January 12, 2015

If you are new to Desire2Learn, plan to attend a one-hour orientation on campus. There is also a troubleshooting link on the Distance Education page. Click on it and make check your computer is compatible with D2L.

Orientation instructions and syllabi are available as soon as D2L is opened one week before the official start of the semester. Log onto https://d2l.vcccd.edu, click My Courses, and enter the D2L class site.

In order to avoid being dropped as a "no show", students must pass the online orientation quiz(es) for each course you are taking from me by 9 p.m. the first Thursday of the semester. If you did not attend an on-campus course the first week of the semester, you would be dropped. The same rule applies to online courses.

Students on the wait list will be moved into the course in place of students who are not attending. Students on the wait list have FULL access to online courses. Read everything and take the orientation quizzes! You will be added if you complete those tasks. Add codes are not distributed to professors until the second week of the semester. I assign them to the first five students on the wait list

ENROLLMENTS ARE LIMITED: REGISTER EARLY!
