Announcing new online learning management system called Desire2Learn

Welcome Fall '10 students! Many (but not all) courses at SJSU use an online learning management system (LMS) to post documents, collect assignments, offer quizzes, host discussion boards, and post grades, using the LMS as a supplement to in-class meetings. Over the summer, we officially switched from Blackboard to Desire2Learn (D2L). There is a new username, password, and web address for D2L.

To learn how and where to log in, go to the eCampus website. At the bottom of the Students page you'll find some Student Resources including a Getting Started Quick Start guide link and some guides to the main tools in D2L.

Some important things to keep in mind:

  • Not all instructors and departments use D2L, and not all start using it immediately in the term.

  • Unless your instructor informs you differently, you will not have access to your D2L course link until midnight of the start date of the class.

  • About 1 week prior to the start date of your class you can follow the steps to look up your username and password, as described on the eCampus website listed above.

  • If you need assistance call the Help Desk at 408.924.2377 or submit a Help Ticket.

  • If you are a student with a disability, and you are registered with the Disability Resource Center (DRC), then please stop by the Adaptive Technology Center located on the second floor of the MLK Library for an introduction to Desire to Learn.

Peer Connections

Peer Connections is designed to assist students in the development of their full academic potential and to motivate them to become self-directed learners. The center provides support services, such as skills assessment, individual or group tutorials, subject advising, learning assistance, summer academic preparation and basic skills development.

SJSU Disability Resource Center

The Disability Resource Center (DRC) is a comprehensive center providing both students and employees with accommodations and services. The center works closely with faculty/staff to deliver services and promote access for students with disabilities in the classroom and throughout the campus. The Disabled Employee Assistance Program (DEAP) is a program within DRC that serves employees with disabilities.
