D2L - Activities, Objectives, and Competencies (UW-Madison)

UW-Madison has adopted Canvas as the single, centrally supported learning management system. Access to D2L and Moodle permanently ended on June 1, 2018.

This is a legacy document which will be permanently removed from the UW-Madison KB space as of June 29, 2018.

After enabling rubrics for UW-Madison, users will notice artifacts of an un-enabled "competencies" tool that can be safely ignored.

Users may receive errors, or notice a lack of functionality, in the following areas:

  • Dropbox "Objectives" tab: users will receive an error when clicking this tab.
  • Discussion "Objectives" tab: users will receive an error when clicking this tab.
  • Rubrics "Properties" tab: users will see a "Competencies" option under "Allow new associations" under "Advanced Availability." Checking this option has no effect at this time.

The competencies tool has not been enabled at UW-Madison because it currently can only be used at the course level, and requires a great deal of time to set up with little benefit of reporting. We are currently exploring ways to make the tool useful at a departmental/program level. Please contact us if you have an interest in exploring this tool at the course level.
