Course Materials NOW available in Canvas

Beginning with the Summer 2019 term, D2L will no longer be used to access online course materials.  Materials will be available in the new Canvas environment.  Please login to Canvas with your NetID via the Canvas Login Page


By default, your course is available for student access one week prior to the first day of the term and two weeks after the last day of the term.  You may wish to give access for a longer or shorter period of time, to modify the default dates do the following.
