As part of the University of Iowa's adoption of Canvas as the new LMS that powers ICON, the previous version of ICON (Desire2Learn, aka D2L) will be replaced by the ICON Archive system,

 

When the Office of Teaching, Learning & Technology made the move to Canvas (the new LMS that powers ICON), we understood that access to previous Desire2Learn (D2L) content would be of value to instructors. For this reason, the ICON Team has built an ICON Archive system that stores old course content that once lived in D2L.  The ICON Archive system will be available near the end of the fall 2017 semester and will include copies of previous courses, as well as instructor and student data.
 
ICON Archive, located within the ICON Dashboard, will allow course instructors to peruse multiple areas of their courses that previously hosted by D2L. Students wishing to access D2L course content—files they uploaded to the D2L Dropbox, or other information from D2L, they will need to contact their instructors.
 
Please see this page for what has been archived and what has not been. https://teach.its.uiowa.edu/news/icon-archive-new-home-d2l-course-content
 
You will also be able to download “instructor content” and import it into a Canvas course.

  

If you have any questions as we continue to archive D2L content into the ICON Archive system, please contact the ITS Help Desk at its-helpdesk@uiowa.edu or 319-384-4357.
