As you prepare for your summer class(es), we encourage you to access Brightspace Orientation for New Students. This orientation will introduce you to the features used in D2L, the online classroom platform used at Inver Hills Community College.  Whether your class is asynchronous (no set meetings times but the class will have set deadlines), synchronous (set meeting times via an online platform like Zoom) or meets on campus, instructors will often use D2L to post their syllabus, announcements, assignments, grades, etc. We encourage you to go through the D2L Brightspace orientation so you feel confident and ready for the start of the semester!
