D2L Daylight is Coming!
In May 2018, the D2L Learning Management System will transition to a new look and
feel called, D2L Daylight. Most of the D2L tools you currently use will remain and
continue to work the way they do now. The changes include a mobile friendly interface
and a cleaner layout with course images. Faculty and staff interested in trying the
D2L Daylight interface can gain sneak peek access by attending a training event.
