Desire2Learn Feedback Form

Please use the form at the following link to submit feedback and/or any issues that you may encounter with Desire2Learn, our Learning Management System. Your feedback will give us a way to "put a voice to your opinions" and share them with the Georgia Board of Regents so that they, in turn, can share them with the Desire2Learn developers.

Emergency Information

The Faculty Development Center would like to remind you of the importance of maintaining a backup plan for teaching and learning in the event of a campus closure. This plan could include things like emailing your students or utilizing our learning management system in order to communicate, to share assignments, and to give class quizzes. With resources such as Courseden at your fingertips, you can easily maintain an "emergency teaching and learning area" just for your class.

Here are a few tips you may wish to consider:

  1. Access Banweb, download and keep a copy of your class roster and email list.
  2. Email your students to let them know how and where they can access your class materials (i.e. Courseden D2L).
    • We recommend using the "bcc" option in order to maintain student privacy.
  3. It is a good practice to make your students aware of an emergency plan at the start of each semester. This can help avoid confusion when or if an emergency arises.
  4. If you are new to Courseden and/or would like to know more about it, you can find faculty tutorials and other useful information by going to the UWG|Online website. The website can be found by going to the following URL:
  5. If you feel that your students may need tutorials as well, they can access tutorials and resources by visiting
  6. Remember, Courseden D2L can be found by going to
    • If you do not know your password, just click "Forgot Password," and the system will email a password reset link to you.

If you have questions regarding how to utilize Courseden D2L as a backup learning area, please feel free to email the Faculty Success Team at or give us a call at 678-839-5289.
