Some instructors may have their own website for research or other purposes, which may be accessed through the faculty directory, but most use the Desire2Learn (D2L) for their course site.
Desire2Learn is an online, or web-based, teaching tool and is not in real-time. Students and faculty interact with each other as members of a class, over the Internet using web pages, discussion groups and e-mail.
UW Colleges Online courses never meet at a particular time or place, although they are structured within an academic semester time frame. Some course web pages have restricted access. For those courses, please contact course instructors for guest access.
