On Thursday June 27th we will be upgrading the Desire2Learn learning environment to version 10.2. The upgrade is scheduled for 6am and should be completed by 12pm at the very latest.
The latest version of 10.2 includes significant updates to the Discussions, Content, and Email tools and minor updates to the Dropbox and Gradebook tools. For a review of the changes please see this document.
Friday, June 14th, 2013 Information Technology Services will be making major network changes in VIU’s data center. The following CIEL services will be unavailable from 6:00pm onward, and possibly extend until midnight: WordPress blogs, VIUTube and Mediawiki
Some users are reporting intermittent issues logging into D2L and accessing D2L content. If you receive an error we suggest retrying as these issues tend to occur only 25% of the time. We are working with Desire2Learn to resolve this issue as soon as possible and will update the community once this has been resolved.
The Desire2Learn June maintenance window is scheduled for Saturday June 8 at 10:00pm to Sunday June 9 at 4:00am PDT.
Desire2Learn’s servers will be unavailable during the maintenance window.
