D2L Course Site Requests

For OCC Instructors Only

Requirements: A D2L course site cannot be provided until you have been officially assigned as the instructor of record to the course section. Contact your department chair with questions concerning your official Online Services section assignments.

IMPORTANT: Due to the Winter Break, D2L blended course site requests submitted after 4:30 pm, December 18, 2014, will be processed on January 5, 2015.

No interruption of service is expected during the Winter Break for the creation of a single section course site. Single section course sites are automatically created the next day (Sunday through Thursday) when an instructor assigns the section to D2L through Online Services.
