Your D2L experience begins at the D2L Login Page. Once you have successfully logged in using your ETSU credentials, you will land
on the My Home page. The My Home page is the university-level landing page for D2L. The two primary components of
the My Home page are Widgets and Navigation bars. Widgets are sections of the page
reserved for information. Navigation bars direct you through the learning environment.
The new minibar is located at the top of your screen. This feature allows you to quickly
navigate between courses, view messages and alerts at a glance, and access your account
settings. The minibar is pinned to the top of the window and is accessible whether
you are inside of a course or on the My Home page. The minibar is comprised of four
major sections: My Home, the Course Selection drop-down menu, the Alerts panel, and
your personal settings drop-down menu.
Click the My Home button at any time to return back to the My Home page.
The Course Selection drop-down lists your courses. You can sort them by course name
or by date last accessed. You can also select specific courses from the menu and “pin”
them to the top of the list for easier navigation. To pin a course, simply click on
the pushpin icon and it will turn orange. To unpin a course, click on the orange pushpin
icon and it will return back to grey.
This panel holds access to messages, updates, and subscription notices.
