What's New in Desire2Learn Version 10.1?
On January 8, 2014 beginning aroung 10:00 pm, until around 10:00 am on January 9, 2014 Desire2Learn will be unavailable due to an upgrade to Version 10.1. All UW System campuses will be upgrading to Desire2Learn Version 10.1. If you are teaching a Winterim course, please plan accordingly.
What this means for Desire2Learn users is a new Content interface using drag and drop features, as well as a slightly new look in Discussions. A newly designed theme for UW Colleges and UW Colleges Online, and a new login page will also be put in place in January. You will love the new look!
