As of Summer 2017, instructors can create their own D2L courses through MyCUInfo and immediately start working in them. This tutorial goes through the process of creating a D2L course.
Note: This process is not supported in Internet Explorer 11.
From the Course Specific Tools tab, select Create Desire2Learn Course.
Some users see an error warning when trying to create a course. Click Create Desire2Learn Course (Error Detected) for more information about the error.
Note: If you do not see this error, skip to Step 5.
Your course information should be displayed. Make any needed changes to the D2L course title and dates, then click Continue.
Note: If you change your course title, please let your students know what the new title is so they can find your course in D2L. Be sure to set your course start and end date to reflect the dates you wish for students to access to the course.
While the course is being created, you will see this in-process window. This will automatically close once the course is created.
You will see a confirmation that your D2L course has been created. From this window you can select:
*Note: You can request changes to a course at any time after creation during the current term. Use the D2L - Request Course Changes tutorial to learn how.
If your course has multiple sections, they will be automatically combined during the create course process. Click the View combined sections link to view all sections included in this course.
*Note: The View combined sections link is not shown for single section (basic) courses.
