On Friday, November 18, ITS will remove all summer 2011 courses from Desire2Learn.

D2L Course Retention Policy

Canisius College follows the recommendation of the Association of Registrars to retain gradebooks for a period of five years. D2L courses will be deleted after a period of five years.

  • If you are a course instructor, please follow the guidelines on the Start/End Course Checklist to save a copy of your course and a copy of your gradebook. This should be done at the end of each semester.
  • If you are a student, please make sure you save your uploaded files and any course files you wish to retain.

For both of these purposes, we recommend Google Drive.
