Font settings can be adjusted D2L under "Account Settings". Option include small, medium, large and huge. There is a preview option below so that you can see what the font will look like.
Simplify the layout of your discussion boards, turn off the "Always show the Discussion List Pane" option. Another option is to turn off the preview pane and have topics displayed in a grid view.
"Agenda View" shows course events from all active courses by date, course, or type. The "List View" displays all events from active courses in chronological order. It can be filtered by the type of event.
You can also choose what type of settings you want for instant notifications. Sometimes keeping all of the notifications on can be overwhelming when you open your email and not particularly helpful. Start with all notifications turned on and gradually turn off the options that you do not find as helpful to you.
