D2L - Expanding a Semester to View Current Courses (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.

After logging in to D2L, as described in D2L - Which login method to use?, you will see the My Home page and the My Courses box which contains a list of current and previous semester.


If you do not see any courses, you may need to expand My Courses.

Notice the arrow to the right of My Courses:

My Courses

1) Click the arrow.jpg to expand the My Courses box and reveal your current and past semester courses.

If you do not see your current courses, first expand the Current Semester.

If you still do not see your courses

Please see the documents below for additional information on why a course might not show under My Madison Courses.
