Set up automatic learning assignments for learning groups

You can assign 10 individual courses at a time and 50 courses maximum to each learning group in your organization. Note that the number of courses within a learning path count towards the 50 total courses that you can assign to a learning group. D2L recommends adding no more than 10 courses to learning paths if you are assigning learning paths using Learning Groups.

  1. Click the learning group you want to edit.
  2. From the Learning tab, click Assign Learning.
  3. Select the check box for the course(s) or learning path(s) you want to assign to the group.
  4. Click Next.
  5. For each course, click +Add Due Date.
  6. Select a Due Date type from the drop-down menu and do one of the following:
    • For a Specific Date, select a date from the calendar.
    • For a Relative Date, enter the number of Days.
  7. Click Assign Learning.


  • Adding a due date to a course is optional. If no due date is assigned for a course, the course remains available to users indefinitely, and no Overdue status alerts will ever appear in Manager Dashboard.
  • You cannot set due dates for courses within learning paths.
  • All due date times are set automatically to 11:59 PM in the default locale of your organization. This time cannot be altered.
