APSU uses D2L Brightspace, often referred to as simply D2L, as the Learning Management
System for our online classroom. D2L is designed to be clean, streamlined, and mobile-friendly
leading to an easy experience for faculty and students. Distance Education provides
and manages D2L for the APSU community. Resources below can help faculty and students
navigate, use, and optimize D2L.
Accessing D2L for Faculty and Students
All faculty and students will access D2L through AP OneStop by selecting the D2L icon, see image below. You will be taken to the D2L home screen
without needing to log in directly. If AP OneStop is having unforeseen technical
difficulties you can log into D2L directly (opens new window) using your AP OneStop credentials. This is often referred to as single sign-on and
these credentials are maintained by GOVSTECH. If you have difficulty logging into
D2L, please contact GOVSTECH at email@example.com or 931-221-4357.

In this short video, APSU faculty and staff can see a brief overview of D2L and briefly
