D2L - Instructor Cannot See a Course in D2L (UW-Madison)

This document explains the circumstances under which an instructor may not be able to see a D2L course and their solutions.

  • Semester or My Courses has not been expanded on the My Home page
    • See Viewing Current Courses for more information on clicking the expandarrow.jpg to expand My Courses or the current semester courses.

  • Instructor is not the "Instructor of Record" for the course (which can be found in the timetable)
    • Registration data such as the instructor of record, rosters, and crosslisted classes cannot be changed by the course instructor or by Learn@UW support. All changes to this info must be made in SIS by the departmental "timetable rep."
    • Please note that changes such as this may take up to 24 hours to take effect.

  • Instructor wishes to view a future semester
    • Currently, the automatic course creation process can only accommodate future semesters a few weeks before they begin. To request a D2L course prior to this time, please complete and submit the course request form at:, or find the link under the "Request a..." menu on the Learn@UW login page.
    • Instructors should complete separate requests for each course that is needed. Email notification will be sent when the course is available (generally within 48 hours).
