D2L Monthly Upgrades – What’s new in September

Welcome to our monthly Camosun D2L Upgrade Report.

For this month’s upgrade, not a lot has changed, but there is one thing that may affect our faculty here at Camosun: a small addition to quiz tool.

Direct export of report data to Microsoft Excel

In the past, you have been able to export quiz results to a CSV file for viewing off-line.  Now you can also export quiz results directly to Excel.  For those of you who didn’t know about this function, try it out!

To export quiz results to Excel:

  1. Go to the Quizzes tool in your course.
  2. Click on the little down arrow next to the title of the quiz you want to see results for and select Grade.
