Status Quo, Meet Your Match

Ideas, big and small, shake things up. They challenge uniformity and one-size-fits-all thinking. They solve problems, improve lives and transform the way we see the world. Ideas are the fruits of fresh perspectives, the inexhaustible returns of diversity. Sparking innovation, insisting on change for the better, ideas connect our people and our communities.

Bringing Ideas to Life

Developing the what, why and when of our roadmap is a thorough but swift process that happens twice a year.

Where should we focus?

First, D2L leaders across K-12, Higher Education and Corporate gather your input and propose initiatives based on what they’ve learned about upcoming teaching and learning needs.

What are the priorities?

Next, we analyze the impact, scope and complexity of each initiative to determine relative priority.

What will it take?

After that, we schedule our product development according to the experience and availability of our teams.

When will we deliver?

We then communicate when we’ll get the work done and deliver on what we said we’d do.


A Focus on the Learning Moment

Learning never stops, and neither do we. Anytime, anywhere learning happens, we’ll be there for you.

Delivering Excellence

When products are built around user needs, everybody wins.
