D2L - D2L Mobile Web (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.
learn@uw is mobile enabled for easy browsing of course content, grades, and calendar on iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android-based smartphones.
Note: This functionality is limited and should be treated like a pilot, with it still being in development.
Accessing D2L mobile on your deviceThe mobile version of D2L launches automatically when you open D2L on your phone's browser. It DOES NOT require you to download an app. Please note that it has a different look and feel than the computer version of D2L, but all of your course content will be the same whether you're viewing on a mobile device or a computer.
Once logged in, you automatically see the D2L Mobile Web.
