This spring we reached a significant milestone in D2L’s history—our 15th anniversary. When we started D2L, it was with a promise of progress. To help the next generation tackle the world’s biggest challenges, we made a commitment to help evolve and improve education and accelerate learning. In the past, improving productivity and solving challenges required investing in new machines. The knowledge economy demands we invest in our human capital to help people reach their full potential.
When I reflect on the past fifteen years, more than anything I am inspired by the achievements of our clients. Together, we’ve taken major leaps forward. We’ve recognized the need and have moved beyond the traditional system of simply facilitating or managing learning. Today, we’re helping 1100 clients deliver a more pervasive, perceptive and personal learning experience to 15M users around the world!
I am extremely grateful for the partnerships and friendships we’ve established with our client community, and I’d like to personally thank you all. Without you, D2L would not be where it is today, nor would we be so well-poised to focus on the challenges and opportunities that face teaching and learning.
When I think about the current age of information and the next fifteen years, the promise of progress feels even bigger and more inspiring. As we build our knowledge through data and insights and tap into our collective experiences, the path we’re on to personalize and improve learning couldn’t be more significant and exciting.
Over the next few weeks, as we lead up to FUSION 2014, we’ll be recognizing many of our clients who share this path with us. Stay tuned to the blog, follow us on Twitter, and share your thoughts in the community. I look forward to celebrating and talking about the next fifteen years with all of you in Nashville!
