Desire2Learn Unavailable Today

d2l_logo18Today, Desire2Learn will be unavailable to Canisius College users between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Desire2Learn’s engineers have taken it offline to complete the scheduled upgrade.

The upgraded D2L will be quite similar to our current D2L visually but some changes aimed at making D2L more intuitive and easier to use will be noticeable.  For example, features are better described to faculty, within the Quizzes tool.

If the upgrade proceeds as planned, Desire2Learn should become available after 8:00 p.m. this evening.  Thank you for your patience.
