What is the difference between the start, end, and due dates in D2L?

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.

What is the difference between Sharing and Pushing an ePortfolio presentation?

Sharing an ePortfolio presentation or item:
When Sharing a presentation or individual items you can set up separate permission options for each artifact, collection, reflection, presentation, and learning objective in your ePortfolio so you can pick and choose what content you share with others. You can choose whether others can see the item, see comments, see assessments, add comments, add assessments, and/or edit the item.  

Pushing an ePortfolio presentation or item:
Pushing an ePortfolio item basically pushes all of the items/artifacts into the intended recipients ePortfolio tool, thereby granting them full read / write access to the presentation and/or individual items that were pushed.
