Mobile Access

Students have a couple of options for accessing D2L on mobile devices:

  • UWEC Mobile App
    This app allows you to access D2L as a read-only site. You can view your courses, grades, assignments, etc. The UWEC Mobile App is not limited to D2L; it also provides access to your UWEC network drives, a UWEC directory, maps, mobile printing, access to McIntyre's catalog, scores of Blugold Athletics games and matches, and so on. For more information, view the UWEC Mobile App page.

  • D2L's mobile site 
    This site allows you to check grades, news, and post messages in a discussion. Users can post in discussions, but otherwise the mobile site is read-only. If you want to view D2L in the standard site, click Desktop Version at the bottom of the welcome page. For more information on the D2L's mobile site, see the documentation below.
