Desire2Learn (D2L) is the learning management system used at Benedictine to support web enhanced and blended courses.  (Online programs are supported by a different system.  See School of Graduate, Adult and Professional Education for more information).

The CTLE has an ongoing course site in D2L containing tool instructions, training information, FAQ, and other resources. To access the CTLE site, log in to D2L, change your role to "Member" or "All Roles" in the My Courses area, and you will see Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence - CTLE_site in the Ongoing course list. New faculty are added periodically and staff are added by request, so if you are unable to see the site after you have changed your role, please contact Hongqin Li (, Academic Applications Administrator, to add you in.

D2L workshops for faculty are offered throughout the year.  The Learning Technologies Expert also holds Open Office Hours where faculty can stop by for informal D2L Q&A.  Schedules for the Workshops and Open Office Hours are announced through Benedictine email.
