D2L - Finding the Course OU Number

Instructions for finding the unique Course OU Number assigned by D2L.

If you need help with a specific course in D2L, it will help to have the 7-digit course Organizational Unit (OU) number when emailing or calling. The OU number is a unique identifier D2L creates for each course. It is not the same as the 5-digit course number used by TitanWeb/Peoplesoft. You can find the OU number in two places.

Finding the Course OU Number in the Web Address Bar

  1. Go to your course.
  2. Look at the address (URL) at the top of the browser window.
  3. The 7-digit OU number is at the very end of the long course URL. (Be sure you are in your course; the OU number for the homepage/MyHome is 7061.)
    OU# 2

Finding the Course OU Number in the Course Information (Instructors Only)

  1. Go to your course.
  2. Click Edit Course in the upper right corner.
  3. Click "Course Offering Information".
  4. The 7-digit OU number is part of the Course Offering Path
    OU# 3
