    About D2L

    D2L, or Desire2Learn, is an online course management system used by UW-La Crosse faculty and instructional staff to enhance face-to-face instruction or teach courses totally online. D2L allows “anytime, anywhere” access to course-related files, electronic dropboxes for assignments, online quizzes and tests, e-mail, and grades.

    Note: Though most faculty use D2L for their courses, students should note that not all faculty utilize D2L. If they do not see one of their courses on their course list, they should contact the instructor to find out if the course will be activated in D2L.

    Scheduled maintenance

    D2L is unavailable each Thursday from 5:00am until 7:00am for scheduled maintenance. Students should avoid taking quizzes during these times.
