Folio

General Information

Folio is the Learning Management System (LMS) that powers Folio on the Armstrong, Liberty and Statesboro campuses. The D2L LMS contains tools and features for delivering online instructional materials to all students at Georgia Southern. Beginning Fall 2018, students and faculty on all three Georgia Southern campuses began using Folio for online course materials and instruction. Folio can be accessed via the MyGeorgiaSouthern portal.

Key Features

  • Provide instructional materials including important documents, PowerPoint presentations, and video and audio resources through the Content tool
  • Assess student learning through Dropbox assignments and Quizzes
  • Keep students updated on their class performance through the powerful Gradebook
  • Meet with students in real-time via Chat and Online Rooms tools
  • Integrate publisher content provided by Pearson, McGraw-Hill, Macmillan, and many others into your course

D2L Daylight Upgrade

Folio has a visual new look and feel called the Daylight Experience. This new interface was built with a responsive design—it adapts to different screen sizes and looks great on laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

The core functionality will not be changing, but you will notice visual improvements:

    • Simplified navigation design that is responsive for smaller devices
    • Wider page layout for your content so that it’s the focal point of the page
    • New fonts, icons, colors, and simpler formatting of widgets provide a consistent experience
    • Responsive homepage layout that works best with two columns
  • New widget for pinned courses to make it easier to organize and focus on your current courses

This video shows a quick glimpse of the Daylight Experience. For additional details join us at one for our Training  Sessions
