Text Notifications in D2L Unavailable
Text Notifications in D2L are not available.
Some students from other institutions or who are familiar with other platforms may be accustomed to text (SMS) notifications from D2L (or another Learning Management System)
Unfortunately, UWGB does not have the text notification feature turned on for D2L. The system responsible for these notifications causes issues with UWGB's email and spam filters.
As an alternative, students can still get Email notifications by clicking on their name in the upper right and selecting "Notifications" and then selecting items for which they'd like to be notified. This will work about as well as text notifications if your UWGB email account is set up on your phone and you have push notifications turned on.
The helpdesk can help with setting up email on smartphones and some other devices (like tablets). They also have these documents available to assist you.
