D2L - Classlist Tool vs "Wisclist Classlist" (UW-Madison)
This document describes the difference between the classlist tool in D2L and the University Classlist service.
The D2L Course management system includes a tool named the Classlist which is used to view enrollment in a D2L course, to access user-specific tools such as the locker, and to access the D2L-specific e-mail tools. While there are e-mail features to the D2L classlist, it is recommended that instructors use the Wisclist Classlist for classwide e-mail purposes.
The University of Wisconsin, Madison also offers an e-mail list service which is called the Wisclist Classlist. This is the method that instructors typically use for classwide e-mails. For more information about the Wisclist Classlist, please see this link.

To administer participants and groups in D2L, use the D2L classlist (http://learnuw.wisc.edu/), which looks like this:
