We've MOVED!

The University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee has moved to D2L version 10.

Updated help files are located at uwmltc.org


D2L v10 preview

The newest version of D2L became available to the UWM teaching and learning community beginning 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 21, 2012.

The major changes in this version involve making the system look less cluttered. WHAT you can do has changed very little, but HOW you get there is a bit different. Here is a video that walks through the major navigational changes, from an instructor point of view, and also gives a quick look at a few new features: http://youtu.be/P-bkvNte0LcAnd here is a transcript of the video, for your convenience:  http://dl.dropbox.com/u/35763729/Transcript_D2L_v10_video_intro.doc

All the LTC help files have been updated to reflect the navigational and functional changes, and those new help files are now available at uwmltc.org.
