  • Important D2L News - Continuous Delivery
    • D2L returns to the “Continuous Delivery” model of software updates, providing regular, incremental improvements throughout the year instead of one or two periodic, large updates. We are looking forward to working with you as we introduce these important changes to D2L throughout the year. You can learn more at uits.kennesaw.edu/d2l, where we will continue to provide updates for D2L Brightspace and Continuous Delivery. For questions or assistance, please contact the KSU Service Desk.

  • Course Shell Requests
    • Please use the Course Shell Request Form to ask for a non-Owl Express generated course for D2L Brightspace. To request an Owl Express course, please contact the Registrar’s Office.

      A course shell functions identically to a normal course, but has no start or end date, and no automated student enrollment functionality. The course instructor must handle participant enrollment. Course shells cannot be used for course credit-earning activities.

  • Third-party Integration Requests for D2L Brightspace
    • Many third-party publishers and vendors offer integrations with the ability to connect to D2L Brightspace courses. University Information Technology Services (UITS) and Digital Learning Innovations (DLI) facilitate and support these integrations, but require advance notice to ensure successful implementation and that the tool meets the accessibility and quality requirements of the University. All third-party integrations must be reviewed and approved by the Digital Learning Innovation and UITS before implementation.

    • To request the implementation of a third-party tool with your D2L course, please complete the D2L Third-party Tool Integration Form. UITS strives to complete each approved D2L tool integration request as quickly as possible; requests must be submitted one semester in advance. 

  • Course Reset Requests
    • UITS Learning Technologies administrators can perform a D2L course reset upon request. Course Reset will return the course back to an empty shell in a single, permanent action. This process purges all data and there is no restore. A key feature is that it will not affect user enrollments. 

      To reduce the chance of unintentional deletions, please fill out and submit the course reset request form.
