This guide is designed for those new to online study and as a general reference guide for all online students.

Navigating Your Course

Daytona State College uses a Course Management System called Desire2Learn or D2L for short.  This is the software you will be using to access your course.  There are links to the login screen in a number of different places including the college's webpage and the My Daytona State portal.  You can also access the Sign In screen directly by clicking HERE.  There is information on this page detailing your default sign in information. 

Once you sign in, you will be take to the main Falcon Online page where you will see a listing for all your courses.  Each course has its own "Course Shell".   Even if you are taking a face-to-face course, you may see a course shell for that course.  Face-to-face instructors often use the course shell for some of the activities in the course such as Discussions or Quizzes. The videos on this page take you through the different ways you can navigate and customize your course shells.
