Obsolete Desire2Learn records to be purged
hands on keyboardsThe UW System began using the learning management system, Desire2Learn, in fall 2003. Since its deployment all D2L course content and student records have been retained. Last year the UW System formed a work group to develop a policy for digital instructional record retention. More information about the policy is available online.

A process now is in place to remove obsolete D2L course content and student contributions. D2L courses offered in any term prior to fall 2005 have been identified as candidates for removal. Desire2Learn courses for the following terms will be removed completely and permanently as of May 26, 2009:
fall 2003, winterim 2004, spring 2004, summer 2004, fall 2004, winterim 2005, spring 2005 and summer 2005.

Instructors are asked to review their D2L courses for the terms listed above for any course information they wish to retain. Information about saving D2L course content is available on the D2L Cleanup Web site. For more information or assistance, contact Roxie Muldoon, LTS, at muldoorr@uwec.edu or 836-2700.
