  • Important D2L News - Maintenance Dec. 27-28, Cloud Hosting, and Continuous Delivery
    • D2L Brightspace will be unavailable for system maintenance on Dec. 27 and Dec. 28. Following this extended, end-of-year maintenance, KSU’s D2L implementation will be moved from an on-premise University System of Georgia hosted implementation to a fully cloud-hosted solution, allowing for increased stability, streamlined updates, and better service reliability through cloud redundancy.

      Here’s a brief summary of what you can expect from D2L following this extended downtime:

    • D2L will be updated to the latest software version.
      Instructors and students will notice a few interface improvements as a result of the service update; we will have more details to share and updated documentation, soon. The transition to cloud-hosting requires no action for instructors or students; all data will be seamlessly transitioned and you may continue building Spring 2019 course content.
    • D2L will return 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 later this 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.

  • 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 the Distance Learning Center 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 Distance Learning Center 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. 

    • The deadline for submitting integration requests for the Spring 2019 semester was August 31, 2018. Please note that The University System of Georgia has initiated a strategic pause for third-party tool integrations with D2L Brightspace. While select requests can be fulfilled based on a publisher’s existing integrations with USG’s implementation of D2L Brightspace, new integration request cannot be processed until the spring 2019 semester.
