To begin the process of combining your Desire2Learn sites, please complete the information below.
Explanation: In some cases, faculty members may prefer that the students from multiple classes be combined into a single Desire2Learn site. A typical example is when a class is listed in SIS as both an undergraduate class and a graduate class, but all the students meet together and so the professor wants to maintain a single Desire2Learn site for the class. Another typical example is when a professor is teaching multiple sections of the same course. You can request that multiple Desire2Learn sites be combined into one site, so that all of your students in various sections of a course share the same Desire2Learn site. That way you only need to maintain one site.
What you should know/consider before making this request:
There are a couple of issues that you should be aware of before deciding to request that your Desire2Learn sites be combined
- This process only copies students from one Desire2Learn site to another. It does not copy any content from one site to another. Instructors may copy content from one Desire2Learn site to another from within Desire2Learn by using to Control Panel. For help, contact ATS.
- The grade book is not copied during this process. If you request that 2 sites be combined after students have already received grades/submitted assignments that material is lost once their Desire2Learn site has been rolled into another one.
- All students in combined sites will appear in one grade book within Desire2Learn. If you have a lot of students this may make the grade book unwieldy.
- Combining students from different courses into a single Desire2Learn site does not alter the students' information in SIS.
