What is MSUM D2L?
Msum d2l is a learning management system developed by Moodle, the award-winning open source, online learning software.
D2L is best described as Web-based course management and educational system. It helps educators to organise courses, work collaboratively with learners in online forums, and create assignment submissions. The software can be used as a standalone LMS or as an add-on for other Web applications like Blackboard or Caktus Learning.
D2L is installed at more than 18,000 educational institutions across the globe and is the most widely used LMS (or learning management system) in Africa.
According to its website, D2L also offers 60 languages of which most are free. The central administration of D2L is located somewhere just outside Leiden, Netherlands. It was previously based in Ann Arbor, Michigan and London, United Kingdom. On this location, the development and maintenance team work closely together with European users and partners.

If you are a current _____ student at MSUM, this post will give you the login information for the Msum d2L system.
The Department of Learning and Teaching has a self-service learning management system, often called D2L. This is where faculty and students can create assignments, grade them, access resources that have been made available to our campus community through our open curriculum.
If you are a current MSUM student, this is how you access the system:
1) log in to Gmail
2) You will need to set up a new email for D2L. This is the one that will access your documents. So be sure to change this email, or we won’t be able to access any of your work! We recommend setting up a new account because it is easier and more secure.
This email address will be your username on D2L.
email@example.com (this is not the same as your Gmail/USMail account)
All you need to use the MSUM D2L is that account name and your USMail/Gmail password to login.
3) After this set up, you can login by going here: https://app.d2l.msum.edu/cw/login.jsp?d2lportal_url=ud2l
There will be a prompt to enter your username and password. That’s it!
You will not need a username for the website, it just needs to be linked to the email address you created earlier.
