D2L Banner Integration coming soon. IT Services, USG, D2L, and Ellucian have been working together to reduce the time it takes for Armstrong students to gain access to courses in Armstrong eClassroom. Over the next month we will be preparing for D2L Banner Integration in our production environments for the Summer 2015 and Fall 2015 classes.
On March 23rd, faculty will have access to Summer and Fall 2015 courses in Armstrong eClassroom using the Integration process. Faculty must be assigned as the course instructor in Banner to have access to the course within Armstrong eClassroom to begin development of the course content.
Students that are enrolled in courses in Banner at that time will also be enrolled in the courses. Students will not have access to the courses until the beginning of the semester even though they show up in the class list. Students will gain access to courses based on the start dates listed in Banner.
- Summer - Session 10 & 11 – June 8, 2015
- Summer - Session 12 – July 6, 2015
- Fall – Session 1 & 2 – August 17, 2015
- Fall – Session 3 – October 12, 2015
As students are registered in courses through the Banner system, they will be enrolled in the courses in Armstrong eClassroom within minutes. Beginning Summer 2015, students will no longer need to wait 1 to 2 business days before having access to the courses throughout the drop add period. Official changes of enrollment in courses must be completed in the Banner system prior to it reflecting in Armstrong eClassroom.
Courses that are cross listed in Banner will also be cross listed in D2L. Any special requests should be submitted through the following online forms:
IT Services looks forward to having this integration in place to provide quicker course access for our students. We will keep you informed as we complete this process.
