A message from CATL… In normal times, the end of life for D2L would be a significant event. These days, it almost seems like an afterthought. If you’ve put off retrieving your material from D2L, or are just hearing about D2L going away now, don’t worry, CATL has your back. The information below will help you retrieve and store the materials you may still have left in D2L.
But make no mistake, D2L will shutdown permanently on June 30, 2020 at 11:59 P.M. After this time nobody will be able to access material. The servers which contain D2L will be dismantled and all data will be lost.
You may still use the same link as always to log into D2L.
Downloading a course will get you a clean copy of the course; student work will not be part of the download. See the next section for information on how to obtain student information.
We have created instructions for downloading a course from D2L to upload into Canvas.
You may need to create a “blank” course in Canvas to store your old D2L courses.
Retrieving student work
Downloading a course will get you a clean copy of the course; student work will not be part of the download. You may wish to download student work or your gradebook if you anticipate that students may wish to contact you for letters of recommendation or if they still have outstanding incompletes in D2L.
As always, feel free to reach out to CATL with questions as they arise.
Program Accreditation Requirements
If your program accreditation process requires D2L course materials for review or other artifacts, please also consider how you will preserve that content. You may wish to reach out to CATL for advice.
