D2L Improvements Coming August 16

Last Updated: 08/07/2014

In preparation for the start of the 2014 - 2015 Academic Year, Desire2Learn (D2L), CU-Boulder’s online learning environment, will undergo an upgrade on Saturday, August 16. This upgrade will make the service unavailable from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 16.

In contrast to major upgrades performed in the past, this upgrade does not involve changes to the look and feel or include significant changes to tool functionality. Rather this upgrade includes improvements to the usability and added functionality that will enhance instructor and student experiences.

Instructors: If you have used Adobe Connect in conjunction with Desire2Learn, please note that Adobe Connect is being retired on August 15 and is being replaced by Zoom. To learn about how to use Zoom with Desire2Learn, please visit the tutorial D2L - Add a Zoom Web Conference Link.

You can learn more about the improvements included in the D2L upgrade at the Learning Environment 10.3 upgrade page. If you have questions about D2L or the upgrade, please contact the IT Service Center at help@colorado.edu or call 303-735-4357 (5-HELP from a campus phone).
