The Desire2Learn/Learn@UW service has been restored as of 12:30 a.m. Thursday, Apr. 28.

Desire2Learn services were brought up one campus at a time throughout the late evening Wednesday with all campuses online at 12:30 a.m. As expected, traffic on the service was relatively light overnight but steady.  

Technologists from DoIT, D2L, and Microsoft are cautiously optimistic and will monitor progress as more people come online this morning.  If the issue manifests again, they may need to bring the service back offline.  Updates will continue to be posted on the Desire2Learn landing page and the Learn@UW Outages page as needed.

Your patience during this outage has been greatly appreciated.  If you have questions, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 608.342.1400 or
