Getting Started

Using D2L Brightspace for the First Time

 

Anoka Tech & Anoka-Ramsey students: When students register, their courses will show up in D2L within 30 minutes. Students will also be able to log in to D2L 30 minutes after they register. Students will see all their courses listed in D2L but cannot access them until the course start date (unless otherwise specified by the instructor). Few courses do not use D2L. Check your college email for important course information. Know your course start date. Contact your instructor the first day of class with course questions.

For Anoka-Ramsey students only

SmarterMeasure will let you know where you’re ready and where you’re not—plus offer resources to help! Spend approximately 30 minutes completing the assessment. Upon completion, print a customized report that addresses your strengths and areas for improvements. Use the report for advising and planning sessions.
