When you first import your alta Common Cartridge into D2L:

  • Your assignments show in the D2L content page within a 'Knewton Coursework' folder.
  • From here, you can edit all of your assignment start and due dates/times. Please note you are not required to enter dates and times in D2L. However, you do need to modify the dates and times in alta to ensure timely gradebook passback. 

If you need to change start or end dates/times after the course starts, you should change them in alta and then also manually change them in D2L.

You can change dates and times at the parent course outline level to trigger date/time changes to all child sections, but note that each section instructor will then have to manually alter the dates and times in D2L.
