Information about the move to Canvas, July 1st:
The last day to access your Desire2Learn courses will be June 30th.
This message is to remind you that we will be switching from Desire2Learn to Canvas this summer, 2017. There are many training resources available to help you with this transition.
June 30, 2017: D2L will be available on a normal schedule (24/7) until June 30, 2017. Please make sure to download any course content you need from D2L by June 30, 2017.
July 1, 2017: we will begin the process to prep D2L to export student data into an archive. From July 1 through July 14, D2L will be intermittently unavailable possibly for long periods.
July 15, 2017: D2L is switched off. From this point forward, course content will no longer be available. Student data (grades, attendance, login activity, etc.) will be in an archive accessible by district I.T. Requests for student activity (for grade challenges, etc.) must be made through your campus instructional technologist.
Summer 2017 course shells were made available in Canvas on March 20. This included shells for all traditional in-classroom courses. If you have a short-term summer section (ends by June 30) and wish to use D2L instead of Canvas, please contact your campus Instructional Technologist.
Fall 2017 course shells are now available in Canvas!
