D2L - Vendor Documentation

Browse documentation provided by D2L for Brightspace 10.7


Desire2Learn is the UW System learning management system for hosting technology-enhanced, blended and online courses. While the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning and the UWM Help Desk provide UWM-targeted documentation, the vendor provides a great deal of information related to the use of D2L. For the convenience of the UWM community, that documentation is provided here.

Caveats of using vendor documentation

Before reading the vendor documentation, be aware of these caveats:

  • The information is general in nature, and focuses on step-by-step processes rather than teaching best practices. This documentation may not address pedagogical considerations. Be conscious of the course design ramifications of using a tool or feature.
  • Documentation may refer to tools or features that are not enabled at UWM. If you have questions, comments or would like access to a tool, contact the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. We may be able to accommodate requests, or provide alternatives.
