The new Desire2Learn (D2L) user interface is a modern, unifying aesthetic that creates an engaging and responsive experience for users regardless of the device they are using. It is comprised of new fonts, simplified icons, responsive design, and a set of fresh navigation controls. The objective is to improve the visual design in several key ways: easy and not be intimidating to get started with D2L; give prominence to learning activities; and have support for universal access on mobile devices. The user interface is not such an extensive a set of changes as it looks at first glance. The changes are mostly cosmetic:
D2L continues to work on enhancing existing tools and resources and there will be tweaks and enhancements in the months to come. All the tools and processes you are familiar with remain the same. Rest assured, all your files, course settings, dates, and class activities are preserved. In the coming months, you may look forward to the rollout a self-guided tour of D2L, updated tutorials, new videos, searchable database, guides, templates, learning tools, and publisher support services. In addition, you can expect some fixes to some 'unexpected features', improvements to existing tools and features, and new learning technologies!
