Students:  Your D2L Questions Answered

Students in grades 7-12:  Here are the most commonly asked questions about D2L.  

1] How do I access the D2L website?
Students can login to D2L two ways:   via the OJR website, clicking Students > D2L OR directly:  http://ojrsd.desire2learn.com
d2l button

2] How do I login?
Students use their OJR network login to access D2L.  Remember, if you cannot login to D2L, chances are you are having difficulty logging into district computers AND Skyward too.  The username/password for D2L is the same as any network service you use in OJR.

Here is a reference sheet to review logging in: D2L Login Instructions 


3] Where do I find my courses?
When you are logged into D2L, you can find courses by clicking the "Select a Course" drop-down.
There is also a widget called "My Courses" to make viewing your current courses simple.

4] What if I switch courses or drop courses?
Not to worry. Giving your teachers a "heads-up" is always a good idea. Course information is updated frequently through Skyward and those updates are then reflected in D2L.

5] Who do I contact for help?

6] I want to take the D2L "Orientation" course.  What do I need to do? 
There will be a total of four orientation windows during this school year.  It is not required, however, it is beneficial to any student taking a "blended learning" class, or any student who would like to be more comfortable using D2L.
  • This course will require "self-registration" - this means, you will need to login to D2L and register on your own during the sign up periods. 
  • There is a calendar on this page that indicates all sign up periods, and start/end dates of the course.  
  • The course window is about four weeks, and can be self-paced. 
  • Mrs. Tobin will be monitoring student progress within this course.

7] What browser (for computer, tablet, or smartphone) and operating system (for tablet and smartphone) do I need to best access D2L?

It's always good practice to be sure:

  • Your phone is updated
  • You connect to OJR  public wifi when in the building (3G/4G connections may  not be reliable)
  • There is space available (delete unwanted apps, videos, photos) - No space means inability to load content and/or download/upload assignments.
