CAREER WORKSHOPS ON D2L

If you are requiring the career development certificate in one of your classes, students can easily log on to D2L and find the class “Career Development Center – Online Learning Center for All Students.” They will find a video for each workshop and a corresponding quiz. After they have reviewed the video, they will be able to take the corresponding quiz. Career Development Center staff will be checking student’s progress and reporting that progress to faculty.
