  • Did you take the D2L Orientation? Sometimes your classes will all be hidden from you until you do the lesson on how to use D2L.
  • Contact your professor -- if it's very early in the semester, they might need to activate the course. Classes are not available before the semester officially starts.
  • If none of the above apply, contact VLAC.
