Frequently Asked Questions for CCD Online
What is my username and password for D2L?
Your Username and Password are the same as your CCDConnect login.
Many science classes require a lab component; how is this handled with online courses?
There are a variety of ways we handle labs for online courses. You never have to come to campus to complete a lab. Some courses require you to purchase a lab kit you will use at home. Some courses require you to use a CD that includes lab simulations.
Where do I get textbook information for online courses?
How often must I be online?
Plan on being online at least one to three hours per week. There will be considerable work and study outside of online class work. Online courses are just as rigorous as campus-based courses and your steady and continued involvement will help put you on the road to successful course completion.
Do I have to own a computer to take an online class?
No. If you are a registered CCD student, you can visit one of the computer labs located in Boulder Creek or Confluence. Call for lab hours at 303.556.2600.
I registered for my online classes a few moments ago, but I can't login to Desire2Learn. Why?
The student information system (where you register for classes) is not on the same computer system as Desire2Learn. The information must get transferred. This happens every evening at midnight beginning two weeks before the start of the semester. The information continues to get transferred up through the last date to add a course.
