Adopting D2L’s Brightspace platform has enabled Te Kura, New Zealand’s largest school, to make the transition from correspondence courses to online distance education. Video capabilities enable teachers and students to learn together in new ways, while smart grading tools reduce the administrative burden for the school’s busy faculty.
All K-12 public school teachers in Ontario have access to Brightspace as part of a provincial virtual Learning Environment. A few of those teachers shared how they’re using the LMS and what they love about it. D2L and the Ministry of Education have an 11-year partnership, with the goal of supporting technology-enabled learning in Ontario. Every school board in Ontario has a Technology Enabled Learning and Teaching (TELT) contact, who support teachers using Brightspace. If you’re an Ontario teacher, contact your school board to learn more about your TELT contact and how they can help. You can also check out the Brightspace Community. For useful teaching and learning resources, you can also subscribe to our blog, by clicking “subscribe” and entering your email address.
The only downside of teachers at the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) loving their new Web 2.0 tools was that they loved a very wide variety of them. They all had different usernames, passwords, and URLs. While the Board used a standardized blogging platform built in-house, they were also branching out in different areas to use different Learning Management System (LMS) tools. That meant they were unable to support one another and, since they were being hosted in a variety of spaces, it was next to impossible for the Board to provide guidance.
In 2003, Alabama was ranked among the lowest-performing states for producing high school and college graduates. Students in rural and impoverished areas were dropping out of high school in droves—not surprising considering the lack of teachers and very limited access to the “Advanced Placement” courses that improve student success in both college and career. Just over ten years later, the changes have been dramatic. With the implementation of the ACCESS (Alabama Connecting Classrooms, Educators, and Students Statewide) Distance Learning program, the state is now leveraging technology to help impact student success.
