Taking online classes? Learn how to use Desire2Learn, FRCC’s online course management system, and tips for succeeding in online courses. We offer two types of orientation:
If you prefer to have an experienced instructor introduce you to Desire2Learn, attend an on-campus orientation. The instructor will demonstrate how to login, view content, send e-mail, and submit assignments. This orientation is recommended for students new to FRCC, new to college, new to online learning, or students who would like to have an instructor available to give them immediate feedback and hands-on assistance. See the Online Learning Orientation Schedule to find an upcoming session at a campus near you. On-campus orientations are open to all students, and no pre-registration is required.
Online Learning Orientation Schedule
If you cannot come to campus, or simply prefer to access the orientation materials online, see our online tutorials which include videos, such as Introduction to Desire2Learn, Easy Navigation, Quick Tools in D2L (including quizzes, dropbox—where you pick up and return your assignments, e-mail, and discussions). In addition, you’ll be able to watch a full-length video of an on-campus orientation. If you wish, you can print step-by-step instructions with screenshots for hard-copy reference.
