D2L My Home
This is the page you see after logging into D2L. There are two areas on this page, the top navigation and banner area and the Content area below.
My Home page has three important areas:
In the top area there is a thin band that includes links and below the band is the Los Rios Community College District banner. At the top left corner is the My Home link which always returns you to this page. Below the course banner, at the far right, click on the down arrow beside your profile picture to access the Logout link.
Add a Personal Profile and Email Signature
It is a great idea to post a picture of yourself so that your classmates and instructor know what you look like in an entirely online class. To do this, use the Profile link.
To save time when composing emails from within D2L, add an email signature from the Account Settings > Email tab.
Setup a Signature for Email
Save time and help your instructor and peers. You can easily edit the signature in each email so include important information. From the My Home page look on the left side My Settings area for the link to Account Settings. Click on it and then choose the Email tab. In the Email Signature box add your full name, the current semester, and other relevant information. Click the Save button to apply the changes. Your signature will be included on each email sent through D2L. For each message, you can edit information to add or remove signature text depending on where your message is going.
Here is an example signature:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Fall 2013 Semester
When an email window opens, your signature is automatically included. By including the current semester, you are reminded to update your signature when it is out-of-date.
NOTE: You can edit your email signature at any time.
These customized settings for student profiles apply to all of your D2L courses.
