New! D2L Version 10 

 

Desire2Learn has been overhauled in version 10.  Unfortunately, this overhaul hasn't gone as seamlessly as many would have liked.  UW-Eau Claire, as well as most other schools world-wide using D2L version 10, has experienced some noticeable performance problems with the new version.  Our support people at UW-Madison are working closely with D2L to rectify this problem.

Some changes you will notice:

  • Redesigned interface using a centered format
  • Persistent minibar at the top of all D2L pages allowing movement between courses without returning to the My Home page
  • Personal Menu on the far right of the minibar to set personal preferences and update your personal profile
  • Restyled layout in the course tools:
    • Within-tool navigational areas are now located along the top of each page rather than in the left sidebar
    • Commands within the tools are now clustered in dropdown menus accessed by an arrow icon
    • SAVE and CANCEL buttons are standardized in the lower left on pages where they appear

New features in D2L include:

  • Must-post-first option in Discussion forums or topics allowing instructors to require initial posts from students before allowing them to see others' posts
  • Instructors may view details of student submissions to the Quiz, Dropbox, and Discussion tools by clicking on the icons appearing in the gradebook
  • Bulk publish of feedback in the Dropbox tool allowing instructors to publish comments and grades for all students simultaneously

Help documentation for faculty and students is available.

Excellence. Our Measure. Our Motto. Our Goal.
