You’re busy with lots of competing priorities on the go. We get it. As your partner in learning, we make sure that our implementation approach is focused on setting you up for success and helping you see early returns on your investment. When it comes to implementation, we offer a true partnership, relying on our experience and expertise to help guide you through the changes needed to support the adoption and engagement that result in ongoing success.

1. Project Starts

Transition seamlessly from contract signature to implementation with a plan that focuses on what you need and makes the most of your resources to drive successful outcomes.

Having completed numerous successful implementations, we know that you need an efficient, timely process that removes past pain points to enable the adoption that will make your learning program a success. We will work with you to uncover your needs, bring to the table items you may not have thought of, and then scope, manage, and deliver a tailored solution.

3. Discover and Configure

We’ll continue to learn about your organization—its background, vision, goals, and strategic initiatives. With this information, we’ll make configuration recommendations that support what learning and development looks like for your organization, so that from day one your users see the platform as an essential learning tool that removes barriers to their professional development goals.

“The team at D2L Learning and Creative Services was excellent. They took the time to understand our vision and explained how we could overcome complex technical challenges in terms that made sense to us. The ability to communicate a new idea and have the Creative team translate it into reality sets D2L apart from less versatile platforms.”

– Krista Walford, Executive Staff Member, Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO)

“Much of our content is very technical, so it can be heavy going for learners. D2L made it much more interactive, more appealing and more professional-looking. It was a super-positive experience working with D2L’s Learning and Creative Services team.”

– Sophie Webber, Head of Training and Events, Grain and Feed Trade Association (Gafta)

5. Enable

We’ve designed targeted subscription training you can access on demand to fit into your schedule instead of working around designated training days. Over the years, we’ve found that knowledge retention is most successful when participants learn something new, try it, and then come back to add to what they’ve learned.
