Deliver Great Results—

A flexible and powerful learning innovation platform, Brightspace is built for learning at every stage of life—from the earliest days of school to higher education and beyond.

We struggled to find a holistic solution with other vendors, but we’ve found it here with D2L Brightspace and we’re really grateful for that.

– Michael Crowe, Vice President Academic, Bow Valley College

One of the things I use Brightspace for is to build community within our teachers, not just students. It’s been really helpful in creating that connection for our online teachers who are all over the country.

– Joy Karavedas, Senior Director of Research and New Program Development, Orange Lutheran High School

You should absolutely, 100% go with D2L. I’ve been with them for 11 years. The system is incredibly stable. It’s incredibly flexible because what you need right now today may not be the same thing you need five years from now. Businesses evolve. Customers evolve. Things change, and D2L changes with you.

– Connie Ryan, Founder and President, Professional Development Institute

I would absolutely suggest going with D2L. The platform offers a multitude of opportunities in how you present your content so it provides the student a better experience to learn from.

– Sheila Unwin, Executive Director, Curriculum Services, Aspen University
