COLI also maintains D2L Support Notes.  These are tips, observations, and other information that has not yet made it into a video tutorial.  These are worth scanning from time-to-time, to learn something new.

Below are links to short tutorial videos featuring various things you can do, and tools you can use in D2L.  Some videos have text transcripts available. Those that do not typically feature closed captions available within the video player.
