For Instructors

Your UW-W D2L Account

All current teaching faculty and instructional staff automatically have an account on D2L. Your D2L login information is the same Net-ID that is used for your UW-Whitewater email account and WINS account. If you have any questions about your Net-ID or your password, please contact the Technology Support Center Helpdesk at 262-472-HELP (4357) or

Where To Get Help

Please review the D2L User Guide for Instructors to learn more about using D2L. Also, on the right side of this page in the "Quick Links" box, you'll find additional support options, such as an Instructor FAQ and video tutorials. Faculty and staff may also contact the Learning Technology Center (LTC) for assistance with D2L. The LTC is located in McGraw Hall, Suite 120 and can be reached at 262-472-1004 or A D2L walk-in clinic is also held in the LTC every Friday from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM during the fall and spring semesters.

Requesting Courses

D2L course creation is not automatic and must be requested by the Instructor of record as reflected in the WINS system. To request a course offering in D2L, please go to the D2L Course Request Site. UW-W D2L Support cannot take course requests via email or by any other means. The D2L Course Request system also allows faculty and staff to request a non-timetable course, which are typically used for course development or special circumstances.
