January Update of the D2L TLLP Group

It looks like it’s been 2 months since we shared, but part of that time was Christmas vacation, and pre-Christmas vacation, so it doesn’t really count as time! Also, we recently experienced the death of one of our recently retired colleagues and it kind of knocked us for a loop!

We are back on track and looking forward to a new semester, new classes and a couple of new D2L courses.

A confession: we’re kind of scared in the sense that we feel it might all be a bit daunting. On…
