What is Online Rooms?
Virtual Classrooms are now Brightspace’s (D2L’s) new synchronous Online Rooms tool. Online Rooms offers many ways to communicate and collaborate with your class and/or outside guests in real-time.
Since Online Rooms is integrated into Brightspace (D2L), all instructors will have access to it providing you have activated your course site. You will be able to create and manage your own Online Rooms.
You can also choose to save your sessions and post them within your course(s) as a resource.
How Do I Access Online Rooms?
Simply go to the Communication tab in your course navigation bar, and choose Online Rooms from the dropdown menu. This will take you to the Class Meetings setup page.
