  • You should have created your ORU email account when you completed your registration steps.  If you have not done so, please refer back to the instructions found here: go.oru.edu/AdvReg 
  • Once you have created your ORU email account, it will take about 12 hours for it to sync with D2L.  (Please note: courses aren’t available in D2L until 1 week prior to the start date.)  
  • Check your ORU email by clicking on the above icon or going to mail.oru.edu and logging in with the username and password that you created during your registration steps. If your registration is complete, an important welcome email will be waiting for you in your ORU email inbox.

  • ORU’s online learning management platform is called Desire to Learn/Brightspace (D2L).  
  • Click on the D2L icon above or go to d2l.oru.edu and log in using your username and password.  This is the same username and password you created for your ORU email account. 
  • When classes are uploaded, you’ll be able to see each of your courses.  Click on the course you’d like to open. 
  • Once inside the course, click on CONTENT > START HERE
  • You will select UNIT 1 and then your assignments should appear in the center of the page.  
  • Click here to view a short tutorial video on how to navigate your course in D2L: D2L: Navigate & Submit Assignments
  • Please note that classes are usually uploaded onto D2L one week before the course begins. If you've completed registration before this time, you may not be able to see the class yet until then.

  • ORU partners with our Campus Bookstore to offer a program called Follett Access, where you will have the ability to find and use your course ebooks via download links in D2L. You will be charged a Follett Access “Textbooks and Course Materials Fee” for each course you take, and will pay this at the start of each semester, as part of your registration steps.
  • Log in to D2L (preferred browsers are Chrome or Firefox), making sure that your pop-up blockers are turned OFF, and click on your course. Once inside your course, click CONTENT> START HERE
  • Scroll down to the bottom, and in the center of the page you will see a link to your digital text. Most of the digital courseware companies require you to create an account. If prompted to create an account, be sure to use your ORU email address. Once you’ve successfully accessed your digital text book, you’re ready to begin your course!

Additional Support

  • If you’re in need of additional trouble-shooting support, please see the chart below for which courseware your course uses, and links to their specific support resources. If you do not see your course listed below, and need assistance, please contact Dr. Carolyn Stubbs at castubbs@oru.edu or 918-495-6186.

Tips for Academic Success
  • Communicate with your professor using your ORU email account and with proper email etiquette. Find out the best times when your professor is available.
  • You can find your professor’s email address in D2L in your Classlist.  To access your Classlist click on Communication in the main menu bar.
  • If you join your class after the start date, send your professor an email to introduce yourself.
  • The course syllabus and course calendar are available under START HERE in your course home page.  Download these documents so that you can refer to them often.
  • Attend all Zoom sessions offered by your professor. 
  • Don’t hesitate to reach out to your professor or the Advantage Program coordinator if you need additional assistance with your assignments.
  • Check with the Advantage Program Coordinator about tutoring for your course.
  • Be mindful of assignment due dates to avoid late penalties.
  • Use the resources provided to you such as Grammarly, Smarthinking (free online tutoring) and ORU Online Library Links.
  • Submit assignments in Word, Excel or PDF format (not Pages or other online documents).
