Learning Online

A student's guide to be successful.

Lean on the LC - Learning Online.

Where do you begin with learning online?

Learning in a university is challenging, and learning online at university has other challenges. This guide is meant to support you to study online as well as in your university classroom. .

Our suggestions are focused on  various applications that students use to learn online: Desire2Learn (D2L), the Learning Management System (LMS) at the University of Calgary in Qatar; WCOnline, the appointment calendar for the Learning Commons (LC) specialists; Turnitin, the program that helps minimize accidental and direct copying of published materials (i.e., plagiarism).

Stay Connected. Log in into your university email and your d2L classroom every day. Communication from your instructor will be done by email and/or D2L alerts. D2L app is called the Brightspace Pulse. Download it now and receive alerts! Android  Apple
