Maintenance normally occurs from Midnight to 6 a.m. CST on the second Sunday of each month. Occasionally, D2L may move maintenance to another Sunday morning due to a holiday or conflict with a planned system upgrade. D2L will NOT be accessible during that time period. Please plan accordingly so that critical course activities, due dates, etc., are not impacted.

Brightspace by D2L

EIU's learning management system is currently powered and hosted by Brightspace by D2L. Desire2Learn has shortened its company name to D2L. In July 2014, D2L announced a new name for the learning management system (LMS), "Brightspace by D2L", which D2L now refers to as an integrated learning platform (ILP).
