d2lDurham College is pleased to provide DC Connect as a learning environment for all students and faculty. Powered by Desire2Learn software, DC Connect provides an online "home room" for your classes. Because it is a web site, DC Connect is available on campus or off, day or night.

DC Connect can be used to give students access to teaching materials, provide communication and feedback, or to take quizzes and submit assignments. You can also show each student their individual grades. There is also a calendar attached to each course to help students manage their time and stay on top of assignments and tests.

Check out the links below. We have also recorded a video for students that can be accessed at http://dcconnecthelp.ca.

If you are a faculty member looking for DC Connect support please feel free to contact us at dcconnect@durhamcollege.ca
