D2L - What is the difference between Start, End, and Due dates in D2L?

A brief description of the differences between the start, end, and due dates in Desire2Learn (D2L).

D2L Start, End, and Due dates 

The Start Date and End Date options available in D2L tools, such as Content and Dropbox, control when students can access the item. 

  • The Start Date determines when the item becomes available to students. 
  • The End Date determines when the item is no longer available. 
  • The Due Date does not affect the availability of a course item, however, it does affect the Calendar tool. In a course, if a Due Date is set on a course item, a corresponding event will appear in the course calendar.
