The My Courses widget you are accustomed to seeing in D2L will look and behave differently in the new Daylight interface. You will now see the My Courses widget at top of your My Home page in Daylight.
In Daylight, courses show up as tiles at the top of the page. Your pinned courses, sandboxes, and community groups will show up first; after that, courses show up in the order of your most recent enrollment. Courses that you have pinned under the Select a Course menu in the classic D2L interface may already be pinned in the Daylight My Courses widget.
To view all your courses, click the View All Courses link in the widget.
Sorting and Filtering
On the All Courses page, you will be able to see all your courses. You can change the order of your courses by using the Sort option in the top right, and choosing the option that you want.
To find current courses, use the Filter option at the top, and select the current semester.
Additionally, you can use the search bar to find semesters faster.
Pinning and Unpinning Courses
To pin a course, hover over the course image until you see the Options menu, indicated by three dots. Choose the Pin option to add the course to your Pinned courses. We recommend that you pin all your frequently accessed courses.
Courses may also be pinned by using the Select a Course grid at the top of the page and clicking the pin icon to right of the course name.
Your course(s) will now appear under the Pinned heading on the All Courses page and display first in the My Courses widget on the home page.
To unpin a course, use the same Options menu on the course and choose Unpin or the Select a Course grid at the top and click the shaded pin next to the course name.
By default, D2L selects an image for your course. You have two options to change the course image: 1) under Course Offering Information or 2) Change Image. To select an image from the D2L library, click on the Options menu on the course image and select Change Image.
On the Change Image screen, hover over the image you want and click Use this Image to change the course image.
Course Offering Information
The Course Offering Information page allows you to upload your own course image and to activate your course. To access the Course Offering Information screen, click on the Options menu on the course and select Course Offering Information.
To upload your own course image:
- Click the Browse button.
- Choose My Computer.
- On the next screen, either click the Upload button to browse for an image on your computer or drag an image into the box.

- The image you uploaded will display under the Course Image heading back on the Course Offering Information screen. In order for the image you uploaded to appear as the course image, you must click the Save button at the bottom of the screen.
Activate Your Course
On the Course Offering Information page you have the option to make your course active. Found about midway down the screen, check the box for "Course is Active." Click the Save button at the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
