Find your Course in D2L

Once you're logged in to D2L, your courses will be listed in the My Courses widget on your homepage.

Logging in to D2L

Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome are the best browsers to use for accessing D2L. You can log in to the system at d2l.depaul.edu using your Campus Connect credentials.

Viewing your Courses

Typically your courses will be grouped by quarter, and if you have more than one role in D2L (e.g., instructor, student, archive), only the courses corresponding to the role selected on the Role dropdown menu will appear. 

However, if you have than 40 courses (counting both current and past courses), not all of your courses will be displayed in the My Courses widget. Instead, you will see a search box and a list of the last 10 courses you have accessed.

If you're having trouble finding a specific course, try changing your role, searching for a specific course, or viewing all of your courses on your D2L homepage following the instructions below.

Changing your Role

  1. Click the dropdown arrow on the Role menu, then select a new role. (By default, usually "All Roles" is selected.) The list of courses displayed in your My Courses widget will change to show only the courses for which you have that role.

Searching for a Specific Course

  1. Click the arrow next to Select a Course in the minibar at the top of any page in D2L. A search box and list of the last 10 courses you accessed will be displayed.
  2. Enter all or part of the code for the course into the Search for a Course textbox (e.g., CMN_101_102_0970), then click the magnifying glass icon. A list of courses that match the text you entered will be displayed in the dropdown menu.
  3. Click the name of a course to access it.

Viewing all of your Courses

Note that you'll only be able to complete these steps if you have more than 40 courses.

  1. Click the magnifying glass search icon next to the Search for Courses textbox, which appears on the top-right side of the My Courses widget. D2L will create a list of all of your courses, but by default, they'll be divided into pages of 20.
  2. Use the drop-down menu on the right to select 200 to show all your courses on one page.
  3. Click the name of a course to access it.
