About Non-D2L Courses

About Non-D2L Courses

Oakton currently uses D2L (Desire2Learn) as its course management software program for most classes. Some courses, however, make significant use of non-Oakton sites such as MyMathLab.

Note: You can recognize that a course is not a Desire2Learn course fairly easily.  The non-Oakton sites will not say "powered by Desire2Learn" in the top left of the web page when you log in, and many require a specific "Access Code" to use the content.

It is especially important for students to familiarize themselves with the technical demands and support provided by non-Oakton hosted classes. While much of the information presented here in the Online and Distance Learning pages remains valid and valuable for all online courses, off-site courses may have specific differences.

If you have any questions, check with your instructor first. If you have a problem, your instructor will know whether it is something that Oakton can help with or whether it must be resolved by the off-site host.
