On-Demand Course Creation Comes to D2L

Last Updated: 06/01/2017

Until recently, when instructors wanted a Desire2Learn (D2L) course for an upcoming semester, it meant requesting a course, then waiting up to two business days for the course to be created by the Office of Information Technology (OIT). Those days are now a thing of the past. Instructors will soon be able to create their own basic, uncombined course, without waiting for OIT to create it for them.

On June 8, a new course creation process will replace the older, slower process of requesting courses. The new process will still begin with the instructor-of-record initiating the process from the Faculty Toolkit in MyCUInfo.

Instructors will then be able to request changes to their course, including combining courses, recitations or labs, or adding additional instructors, teaching assistants, or auditors.

This new course provisioning process will use pop-ups. So please make sure your browser pop-ups are allowed for MyCUInfo before you request a course.

Visit this tutorial for a step-by-step guide on the new process. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the IT Service Center at help@colorado.edu or call 303-735-4357 (5-HELP from a campus phone).
