D2L: Print Documents From Content


Sometimes a printed copy of content in a Desire2Learn course is needed. If a document has been created outside of the Desire2Learn environment and uploaded to Desire2Learn. It can be downloaded to a local computer and printed. In version 10.3, a new feature was added that allows documents created within the Desire2Learn environment (using HTML) to be printed directly from the content page. This feature is available in both instructor and student view.
