D2L Instructor Quick Reference is simple iOS app that gives users easy access to information on using Desire2Learn’s most popular tools. Simply choose a tool from the topics list to learn more about it. Enter your organization’s support contact information on the Preferences tab and quickly call or email any time you need additional help by shaking your device!

I first released the D2L Quick Reference iOS application in February 2011. Over a three-year time period, the app was downloaded thousands of times and maintained a 4+ rating in the app store. However, I decided to stop development of the app in 2014 and focus on other projects. Thanks to everyone who used the app and made it a success!

This is a very helpful quick reference app for faculty using tools in the D2L Learning Environment. There are simple to follow step-by-step instructions for most of the tools that are used in the system. And the price is right!
This is an awesome app. Kudos to the developer. Directions are written in a clear and engaging manner. Faculty should be able to follow as they develop materials inside their D2L course shells.
