From 3pm May 22 until 7am May 26, Learn@UW will be unavailable for an upgrade to the latest version of the Desire2Learn software.

This new version, D2L 8.3, will introduce a number of improvements to the existing software and also a few new features.

DoIT Academic Technology is preparing information and presentations designed to introduce you to the important changes to Learn@UW.

We realize that this is a very lengthy outage. Please know that every attempt has been made by Learn@UW technical staff and the Desire2Learn company to ensure a successful upgrade in as short a time frame as possible.

Learn@UW is a UW System-wide service that is centrally hosted and managed, thus this outage affects all UW campuses. Scheduling of the upgrade is done in close coordination with all UW campuses taking into consideration all academic calendars.

Watch for further information via email regarding this upgrade and outage.
