eCourseware - Spring Tune-up
As we continue to make improvements to eCourseware beginning April 21, 2017, there will be new changes made to the system.
Shorten Your Wait!
Your courses in eCourseware will no longer take 24-48 hours to be available! Yep, you read that right! You asked and we listened. Faculty and students will be able to access their courses shortly after they register or have been assigned a course during the semester's enrollment period.
eCourseware (Desire2Learn) Tools
Brightspace Pulse is a mobile app that can help students stay connected and on track with their courses in eCourseware (D2L Learning Environment). It provides one easy view of course calendars, readings, assignments, evaluations, grades, and announcements. The app can also help students make better decisions about how to handle workloads, when to submit assignments, and when to prepare for tests.
The ePortfolio tool is an 'electronic portfolio' linked right inside of D2L. This tool enables you to store, organize, and reflect on items that represent your learning experience. Items in your collection can include documents, graphics, audio files, videos, and presentations.
Build a collection of digital artifacts that you can share with others to get good feedback and comments on your work. As a finished product, you can use ePortfolio to demonstrate your achievements to a potential employer.

The Discussions tool is a collaboration area to post, read, and reply to threads on different topics, share thoughts about course materials, ask questions, share files, or work with your peers on assignments and homework.
Use the Quizzes tool to take a quiz, review your quiz results, and see class statistics for a quiz.
The Dropbox tool enables you to submit assignments and eliminate the need to mail, fax, or email your work to instructors. Simply upload your submission to the appropriate dropbox folder and submit.
Use the Grades tool to check your grades on assignments and tests. You can see your individual grades and comments, as well as class averages and feedback.
The Blog tool is a way to share information on topics that interest you. Use this page to post and respond to questions, engage in discussions, and share opinions and comments with other users.
The Email tool allows you to send email from within the eCourseware learning environment. You can also organize received mail using folders and store email addresses using the Address Book.
Wiggio enables group communication and collaboration. Using Wiggio, you can hold group discussions, assign tasks to group members, poll members, share calendars and schedules, upload and manage group files, and communicate using live conference calls, video conferences, chat rooms, texts, emails, and voice mail.
Use the Content tool to access course materials, complete required activities, and monitor your completion progress on topics contained within each course module.
