Let’s Fidget With Our Custom Widgets

The first breakout session of D2L Fusion. I have absolutely no idea what to expect and I have no idea what I plan to do with the results of this session. Not even being a D2L customer, I’m hoping to get ideas on what the course homepages can do/how they can be customized.

So with that, let’s look at some custom widgets…

So overall, the session was fairly basic. From a beginning user, it seems like the steps of creating a widget in D2L seems pretty straight forward. The hardest part is getting the embed code or generating the iframe for the content. What I didn’t see, that I would be interested in, is how to put checklists in a widget on the course homepage. A visual representation of what the students still have to do for that week or module, and one that updates as assignments are completed would be beneficial. Add that to the list of questions to have answered…
