Students Prefer D2L Classes

D2L has been a helpful tool for both teachers and students, but when a class does not have one, some students say it can make their lives more difficult.
Nicole Gaudette, a microbiology senior, said it is inconvenient not having a class on D2L.
Without a class list it becomes difficult to email fellow students about lectures she might have missed, she said.
"I physically have to walk up to people and ask for their email addresses rather than sending out a mass email to students who are in my class," she said.
This semester her biostatistics class is not on D2L, but is instead using two separate websites, which Gaudette says can be difficult to keep track of.
"Every class on campus should have D2L," she said. "It's more convenient having all your classes on one website, and the features like grades and content are helpful. It makes everything easier," she said.
Gaudette thinks the reason some professors don't utilize D2L is that they may not understand how to use it.
