Course Dashboard Being Decommissioned as of July 30, 2019
Posted: 08:26:38, Tuesday, Jul 16, 2019 Expiration: 08:26:38, Monday, Sep 9, 2019
The Course Dashboard (coursedashboard.learnuw.wisc.edu), which provides a consolidated list of all online courses that use the Canvas online platform, will be turned off on July 30, 2019.
Users accessing the Course Dashboard after that date will be redirected to canvas.wisc.edu for a limited time.
The Course Dashboard was originally launched in February 2015 to provide students one site to access their courses no matter if their instructor used D2L, Moodle or Canvas. Now that campus has successfully transitioned to Canvas as the sole learning management system, the dashboard is no longer needed. Instructors, staff and students can view courses by logging into Canvas at canvas.wisc.edu.
In addition, the old Learn@UW-Madison website (learnuw.wisc.edu) will also be decommissioned on July 30, 2019. Information including key features, instructional uses and links to additional resources are available on the DoIT Academic Technology website for each of the Learn@UW learning technologies. Those are:
Canvas learning management system (LMS)
Kaltura MediaSpace media delivery platform
AEFIS (Assessment, Evaluation, Feedback & Intervention System) student learning assessment tool
Top Hat student response system
Blackboard Collaborate & Blackboard Collaborate Ultra web conferencing tools
Piazza online discussion platform
Pressbooks eText authoring and hosting platform
If you provide online training courses in Canvas (such as compliance training, employee training, etc.), we ask that you please review your training-related communication materials and make any necessary updates based on these changes. For instance, some groups provide specific instructions for their learners to access a Canvas course through the Course Dashboard. This is common among online training courses and will need to be updated to direct learners to Canvas.
