D2L was founded in 1999 by John Baker. At the time, his engineering class was being challenged to look at the world in new ways by coming up with questions that no one had asked before.
John realised that despite all the change technology was driving in the world, his University campus seemed almost untouched by that momentum. The question he wanted to ask was clear: how could we use technology to dramatically transform learning?
He’s come to believe that one of the most important things we can do to help each other is ensure that everyone has access to the best possible learning opportunities. Today, D2L is working with customers around the world to help learners at a scale that was hard to imagine in 1999.
D2L’s technology is currently being used by more than 1,100 clients and 15 million learners in higher education, schools, healthcare, government, and the enterprise sector. In sixteen years, our team has grown to include over 800 employees around the world. We currently have offices in Canada, the United States, Europe, Australia, Brazil, and Singapore.
