Desire2Learn (D2L)

D2L is a tool that facilitates the creation of sophisticated World Wide Web based educational environments. It can be used to create entire online courses, or to simply publish materials that supplement existing courses. At the University of Guelph, D2L is most often used to provide students access to additional course materials, opportunities for online discussion forums, and online quizzes.

Web Advisor

WebAdvisor is an application that allows you to add and drop courses online, view your class schedule, view your grades, view your financial statements, run your own academic evaluation, access a final examination schedule and apply for graduation. New in April 2005, your Web Advisor password is the same as your Central Login Account (email) password.

Departmental/Novell

Many departments and colleges across campus have other servers for specific tasks, file servers for storing, sharing and printing files, application servers which serve out programs, or departmental web servers. Access to these servers is typically limited to faculty, staff and/or grad students in these departments, but individual policies vary. For access to any of these servers its best to contact your departmental IT Admin or support staff in your area.
