Creating a custom course homepage

1. Log into D2L course & navigate to homepage

The location of your Course Admin may vary depending on the D2L Template in use. In most cases, it will be located on the menu bar. (Check under “More.”)

  1. Click on “Homepages”
    You will need to create a customizable course homepage so you can modify widgets.
  1. Make a Copy of a Course Template
    If you’ve never customized your course homepage for the course, you’ll need to make a copy of the course template. Don’t worry, nobody else can see this and you’re not going to break anything. You can choose the default or any other option you prefer.
