D2L - Accessibility Spec Role (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.

The D2L Accessibility Spec Role allows service providers course access so they can facilitate student accommodations.

Service providers will have read only access to content at all times. Please see below for a more detailed list of their access.

This role has access to:
  • See all content, including:
    • content that hasn’t yet been released to student
    • courses that aren’t yet open or have been closed (the closed course most often comes into play when we are looking at content for a previous semester to plan for a future semester)
This role cannot:
  • Edit or Modify any content or settings for the course, including Gradebook settings.
  • Participant in course in terms of making posts, turning in assignments, receive grades, etc (we can use professional judgement on this one if needed)
  • Assign or change roles
This role is displayed in the class list under staff.·
