D2L - Requesting a course that is not automatically created (future, non-timetable, Independent Study) (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.
There are three paths to obtaining a new D2L course:
- This document describes the process for requesting a new D2L course for either a future timetable course or a non-timetable course, or a timetable course that is not automatically created.
- To activate a timetable course in the current semester please see Activating a Current Semester Course.
- To copy a course from a previous semester and activate the current course please see Copying a Course from a Previous Semester.
UW-Madison instructors can request a new D2L course by completing and submitting the course request form at: https://learnuw.wisc.edu/forms/d2lrequest.asp
Instructors should complete separate requests for each course that is needed. Please be prepared to supply your NetID, department name and number, and a name for the course.
Email notification will be sent when the course is available (generally within 48 business hours).
Note that future courses will need to be activated following the instructions in Activating a Current Semester Course when the semester arrives.
