Last Updated: 04/03/2017


This page is for instructors that teach official CU Boulder courses for credit and non-credit. Instructions and information for Desire2Learn course requests are outlined on this page.

If you are teaching a community course that is not connected to an official CU Boulder course, learn how to make a Desire2Learn community course request.

Please submit a course request through myCUinfo. To do this:

  1. Login with your IdentiKey.

    *Note: if you do not see the Teaching Tools tab in MyCUInfo, your departmental assistant may need to contact the Registrar and inform them that you are an instructor at CU. If you do not see the particular course you are teaching, your departmental assistant may not have assigned you as the instructor of that course yet.

    *Note: If you would like to combine multiple sections you're teaching into a single D2L course space, so that each section has access to the same shared D2L space, please select the sections you would like under the Combined Sections heading. If you would like to combine your course with a course that's not listed, please enter the information in the Please add any special instructions or questions here field. You can request that associated courses (e.g., recitations and labs) be combined with your course here as well.

The Toolkit will show future courses; therefore you can request courses well in advance.
