D2L - Which login method to use? (UW-Madison)
UW-Madison is adopting Canvas as the single, centrally supported learning management system, and discontinuing support for Desire2Learn (D2L) and Moodle. Access to D2L and Moodle will permanently end June 1, 2018. For information about retaining materials from D2L or Moodle, please refer to this document.
Which login button should you choose on the Learn@UW homepage?
- Click the UW NetID Login button.
- Enter your UW NetID and password on the common NetID login screen.
- Click the D2L Visitor Login button.
- "D2L Visitor" accounts are generally given to non-UW people including visiting instructors, outside collaborators, and many participants in non-credit UW courses. Additionally, some people have been given Visitor accounts to use as a generic group account or as a "pseudo-student" (for testing purposes).
