Mobile Access

You can access D2L from your mobile phone. The mobile site allows you to view grades, news, and other items, and post messages in a discussion. Users can post in discussions, but otherwise the mobile site is read-only. If you want to see D2L in the standard site, click Desktop Version at the bottom of the welcome page after accessing the mobile site.

NOTE: You may have also heard from students that D2L is accessible via the UWEC Mobile App. This is true for students: they are able to access their D2L courses in read-only mode, meaning they cannot perform activities such as post to a discussion topic or submit to dropboxes. They can view their course classlist, see assignments (dropboxes), read discussions, and view grades. Faculty, however, are not able to view their courses at all through this mobile app. Similarly, students cannot access any project courses or courses in which they are enrolled as an Academic Assistant.
