Course Home Overview


Course Home is the first page that users see when visiting a D2L course site. The Course Home can be used to share important information with students, including news updates and upcoming due dates.

The Course Home page is comprised of boxes of content called widgets. Some departments may designate that specific widgets be added to the Course Home page, or even a specific layout, but most course sites will simply display the university-wide default widgets, which include News, Updates, and Calendar widgets.
