Modify the navigation bar

Contact Distance Education Faculty Help Desk

You can add links to Desire2Learn tools that you use in your class, such as Content, Quizzes, Dropbox, Discussions, and Grades to a navigation bar. You can also add links to content on other web sites or to tools that are not part of the default navigation bar. You cannot add all the tools on the navigation bar. Some tools are only available in widgets and on the minibar.

Since the minibar contains links to My Home, courses, email, pager, and user settings, the links on your navigation bar should primarily be tools that your students need to complete your course work.

  • Who is this for: Online Instructors
  • What is required: A Desire2Learn course and links to tools or resources not currently in the navbar
