D2L "Content Viewer" Blues

Unfortunately, the UW-System, including UW-Superior, had trouble with Desire2Learn (D2L, or Learn@UW-Superior) over the last week, following a recent upgrade.

Our Tech Services folks report that the Content Viewer problem appears to have been solved. If it returns, leaving you unable to view PDF or Word files, you can always download the files to your computer, and view them there. If you have trouble with Google's Chrome web browser, they suggest trying a different browser (i.e. Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari). The DLC staff joins the Tech Services staff in empathizing and apologizing for the inconvenience and frustration this D2L problem has caused students and instructors this last week!

UWS Tech Services offers students assistance via the Help Desk. It's available from 8 a.m. to 7:30p.m., Monday through Friday.

Atomic Learning is UW-Superior's online training resource to help guide you through common issues in many software programs. Log in to our Atomic Learning web site using your UWS username and password to access thousands of short, easy-to-understand tutorial movies and "how do I apply that" training modules.
