Intelligent Agents

Intelligent Agents are automated operations that trigger once a parameter has been met. To put it more plainly: It is a program in D2L that can help you manage your classroom. An example is a student that has not logged into your course for several days. If you set up an Intelligent Agent to watch for when students do not log in after several days, the Agent can automatically send the student an email.
