Virtual Classroom

You can use Virtual Classroom to host online classroom sessions or video meetings. The sessions may be saved and posted to the course content as a resource.

Instructors will have access to Virtual Classroom through their mycourselink sites. These tools are found on the navbar under the Other Tools dropdown menu.

To schedule a meeting in Virtual Classroom (in D2L):

  • From the D2L course site navbar, select Virtual Classroom from the Other Tools dropdown menu
  • From the Virtual Classroom interface, click on the “plus” button in the bottom right
  • Enter the meeting details (title, time, duration, etc.). (Some options are selected/unselected by default – review these carefully.)
  • Click Save to complete the setup.
  • To launch the meeting, find the meeting under “Active Meetings” and click on the three dots under the Actions column, then click Launch.
  • Enter the Meeting Room by following the prompts.  Select Record (top of the screen) if the meeting was not set to record automatically.
  • Once the meeting is scheduled, a link for students to join will automatically appear in the Calendar tool (on course homepage).
  • Recordings are available through the Virtual Classroom link (under Other Tools) under the Recorded Meeting section.
