BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - University of Colorado students taking their courses online are struggling after their Internet connection failed.

Desire2Learn, the online learning system used by the university, has suffered two outages this year, affecting classes at hundreds of institutes worldwide.

The system is used by professors across the CU campus who use it to post assignments for students and to grade tests.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, company officials are blaming the shutdowns on computer problems affecting about 8 million students worldwide.
