Are Your Documents Displaying Correctly in the New Version of Desire2Learn?
With the recent upgrade of Desire2Learn,the Content Viewer has been updated to display previews of Word, PowerPoint, and PDF documents. While Instructors and students may preview documents without downloading the file first, the following functions are impacted:
- The ability to select and open HTML links in documents and presentations
- The ability to view animations and multimedia in PowerPoint Presentations
- The potential for headers, footers, tables, and auto-formatted lists to not appear in Microsoft Word documents

Sending Mail to Yourself in Desire2Learn
When you send mail to yourself from within a course, the message WILL send successfully but WILL NOT appear in the course inbox. In order to see the message from within your course, you will need to filter the inbox to "All Messages". Viewing your mail from the My Home page will also show all of the messages from every course, including those messages you've sent to yourself. Desire2Learn is currently looking into this situation.
My Courses Widget
The ability for Instructors and Students to expand and collapse the My Courses Widget by Semester is currently not working. Desire2Learn is scheduled to have it fixed within the next few months. We will update you once we receive confirmation. Thank you for your patience regarding this.
