Why is RCTC E-mail Important?

As a student in an online course, you are required to communicate with faculty and staff using your RCTC e-mail account,, the official means of communication at RCTC.

Why is D2L Important?

D2L is a way to deliver interactive courses or course components over the Web at RCTC. It provides students with static content (e.g. syllabi, schedules, announcements, and lecture notes) as well as access to interactive tools (e.g. discussions, whiteboard, chat) Students may connect to their class from anywhere they have computer access. The secure environment allows students and instructors to communicate and exchange course materials and grades.
