Canvas and D2L Updates

A reminder that all institutions in the UW System, including the UW MBA Consortium, are transitioning classroom software from D2L to Canvas. Because the two systems use different login pages and credentials, we have created a page to help you know which system to use to access your class(es). We'll also communicate which system to use via email. View new D2L/Canvas login page

Consortium transition timeline

During Fall 2018, three classes will be in Canvas while the rest will remain in D2L. A few more will be in Canvas in Winter 2019 and Spring 2019. Beginning in Summer 2019, all UW MBA Consortium classes will be offered in Canvas.

Meeting Class Deadlines

Classes offered through the UW MBA Consortium are set up to be flexible, so you can complete coursework on your own time as long as you're meeting established deadlines in your class. Classes open one week before the official start date so you can begin reviewing content. We recommend using that time to develop a plan for completing coursework by the deadlines.

In D2L...

A comprehensive list of due dates is available in each course. In the Course Information page, you can find a page with Calendar in the title. This calendar shows all of the due dates for the course, including reading assignments, dropbox assignments, discussion activities, and quizzes.

In Canvas...

You can find a comprehensive list of everything that is due by clicking on the Calendar link in the global navigation bar. This calendar displays deadlines for all classes and allows you to customize the view by week, month, or agenda. You can also filter by class and view any items that may not have a specific date assigned to them. Learn more about using the calendar in Canvas

Canvas Quick Tip: Notifications

You will receive various notifications about your course based on default settings in Canvas. However, you can customize the settings so you receive only the notifications you want and in the format you prefer. Learn more about customizing your notification preferences
