D2L Sunset

As the UW System migrates from D2L to Canvas, we will be sunsetting D2L. This means that as of June 2019, we will no longer offer any courses through D2L. We will have access to the system through June of 2020, but it is strongly recommended that all students, faculty, and instructional staff that use D2L work on saving copies of their content before January 2020.

D2L Sunset Checklist (Instructors)

Below is a checklist of things that should be done in order to prepare for the loss of D2L. Be as thorough as possible while going through the checklist and please email innovations@uwp.edu with any questions.

  • Email innovations@uwp.edu for information on Canvas training or self-enroll into the online Canvas Training Course.
  • Instructions on how to export course content.
  • Request sandboxes for all courses in Canvas even if you're not sure you will teach the course again. Sandboxes in Canvas are course shells that can store all of your course content from D2L. We HIGHLY recommend requesting sandboxes for all courses that you have D2L content for. To request sandboxes, please email innovations@uwp.edu.
  • Import all D2L content into Canvas sandboxes. When you request sandboxes by emailing innovations@uwp.edu, please specify what content you'd like moved from D2L to Canvas. This means that the Innovations team can do this task for you, but if you'd like to import your own content, you are more than welcome to using the instructions linked below!

  • Request that all quizzes be moved from D2L to Canvas. Quizzes are the main thing that do not transfer smoothly from D2L to Canvas so they have to be transferred manually. To help with this task, the Innovations team has two project positions who will help migrate quizzes until May of 2019. Please email innovations@uwp.edu to request that your quizzes be transferred by May 10th, 2019.
  • Export content from D2L locker. If you use the D2L locker, make sure that you are downloading all of that content and storing it on your computer, OneDrive, or your Files area in Canvas.

  • Remind students to save all of their content. Students will receive communication to save all of their work and to export their D2L lockers and save their ePortfolios, but instructors should remind all of their students to save their work in case they miss the communication.

  • Double check everything. Make sure you have all of your content stored on your computer, OneDrive, and that you have all of your content in Canvas Sandboxes.
