How-to: Enriching Your D2L Shell

BC Online's Guides answer questions for our course developers like:

Do-It-Yourself: Creative Media

Anyone can create a video and upload it to Youtube. D2L enables course developers to link to their own content or to external content. 

What can you add to your shell?

What tools can you use to create videos?

  • Capture your screen so your students see what you're seeing using Jing 
  • Create videos with Animoto (apply for free educator account) and/or make short animated videos with Powtoon
  • Record lectures and presentations using your smart phone, tablet, or other mobile device - Learn how on Lynda

Enhance your presentations and handouts with images and informational graphics (infographics) that are dynamic and engaging. 

How can you create graphics and infographics without Photoshop?

 Most of these tools are free and easy to use and can be explored before utilizing for your class. If you need any help in using them, please contact your campus IT or library. 

BC North has the unique benefit of a Creative Media department that can work alongside faculty to prepare digital AV tools for students. North Campus's Creative Media team can be contacted through the Academic Success Center at ext. 2260.
