D2L allows instructors to create “Activities” in two places: the Content area OR the associated area. This article demonstrates creating a new activity from the Content area.

Creating an Activity from the Content Area

Enter the module that will contain the new activity. Click “Upload / Create” and choose the desired activity from the list. Follow the on-screen set up prompts. In this document, creating a Discussion is shown.

Enter a title for the discussion topic (or other activity) and select a forum from the drop-down menu, or create a new forum. Type your instructions for the discussion and click “Publish.”

When a new activity is created from the content area, a link will appear directly in the module and the activity will also be created in the designated D2L area. You can edit the activity in either location.
