Instructional Design and Technology Team

The Instructional Design and Technology Team supports and administers D2L Brightspace and its various tools. The team consists of technologists and designers each supporting the system in a different way. Instructional technologists and applications specialists handle changes to the system such as adding new tools and copying courses.

Instructional designers work with instructors to ensure courses are up to state standards and teach instructors how to use new tools within their courses to enhance the experience for everyone involved. 


Online Learning at DeSales

Attending classes from an off-campus location can be an excellent option for many busy students. Distance education at DeSales encompasses everything from video conference courses to hybrid (a combination of in-class and online) to online courses. 

Brightspace by D2LTM is our online learning system.
