Did you know that the Content area of D2L features an Overview page that an Instructor can place important information in?

The Overview page is a setup to be the first page that a student sees when the first enter the Content section of your course. This page can be used to provide initial information for the course, such as:
  • General overview statement for the course
  • Welcome message and Instructor information
  • Initial instructions for beginning the course

The Overview page will only appear the first time a student enters the content area but can always be accessed from the left column of the Content page. Instructors can either type in their information directly into the Overview page or upload a single document to the page.
