Desire2Learn has a very active user community that is accessible by all ORU faculty and staff. There is lots of information about new product initiatives, extensive discussion groups by hundreds of other people using Desire2Learn, and loads of documentation. You just need to go to the site and request a login, using your ORU email address. They will verify your eligibility and send login information, usually within 24 hours and often within the same day.
