Check out D2L training and support options before ANGEL retirement

ANGEL will be retired on May 15, 2015, as MSU moves to Desire2Learn for its centrally supported learning management system. Many resources are available to support instructors and staff as they transition courses and groups to the D2L.

For a timely conversion, IT Services recommends any course materials and groups are converted from ANGEL to D2L prior to February 1, 2015, so users can experiment and get comfortable with the new system.


D2L training is available through ANGEL to D2L Conversion Labs, D2L Help On-The-Go events around campus, and in-person topical D2L training.


D2L sessions are also part of MSU Seminars in Research and Instructional Technology December 16-17. Register for this event by December 12.

Additionally, departments can request customized D2L conversion training for groups of 10 or more people.
