  • Announcing a New and Better Online Platform! Beginning in fall 2019, UWM’s School of Continuing Education joins UWM faculty and staff in using Canvas for its online and blended courses. Canvas was chosen by UWM because it is a user-friendly, intuitive platform implemented by colleges and universities across the U.S. D2L (Desire to Learn) will be discontinued. There will be online tutorials available to help you learn Canvas. Instructors and staff are available to help you access and become comfortable with this new system.
