Our learning management system, Desire2Learn is scheduled to be upgraded to version 10.4 on May 21 & 22, 2015. This upgrade is necessary to prepare our campus for the continuous delivery method of updates that D2L is requiring all customers adopt by the end of the 2015 year. This upgrade will require 48 hours of planned downtime for our environment. On May 21st-22nd, D2L will be unavailable while the update is implemented. We recognize there is no good time for the system to be down; however, we tried to select dates that would impact the fewest number of individuals on our campuses. Our online education support staff, led by Marc Routsong, are currently working on testing our D2L test environment which has already been upgraded to version 10.4. This thorough testing will help us make the transition in May as seamless as possible to end users. In addition, Sue Taylor-Owens will be creating new documentation as needed to support the campus for the new features/options added to D2L in this upgrade. If documentation is updated, Sue will send out detailed messages later this semester.
Please send any questions or concerns about this schedule to firstname.lastname@example.org . We are excited about how this upgrade can better serve your online course needs with new features and more timely upgrades.
