Personalise the learning experience

Brightspace enables you to quickly and easily set up individualised learning paths for each of your students. Give great feedback to keep students on track with automated nudges. Set up rules to manage enrolments for things like study groups—all based on a learner’s activities within courses. Increase learner engagement by making it easy for students to connect with each other and discover achievements by displaying each learner’s picture and profile throughout the system.

Go beyond just basic accessibility

Brightspace is the first—and the only VLE—partner of the National Federation of the Blind’s Strategic Nonvisual Access Partnership (SNAP) program which has now been redesigned as their Centre of Excellence in Nonvisual Access (CENA). Accessibility and universal design for learning (UDL) are baked into D2L’s entire development process to help ensure disabilities do not pose an obstacle to learning. Academic staff can even use a built-in accessibility checker for content, quizzing and discussions. We go beyond implementing accessible technology—we’re helping build the next generation of accessibility standards. Accessibility is never an afterthought.

Motivate your learners and minimise their anxiety

Keep learners encouraged and growing by sending timely, positive reinforcement and helpful, friendly messages. Learners can see their progress in dashboards and access their grades whenever they choose. Plus, we make it easy for you to provide timely and personalised feedback in the moment—which helps lead to greater engagement and retention.

Give learners the tools they want to use

Today’s modern learners live in an online and social world. They expect their learning experience to be just as connected. With Brightspace, learners can build presentation and critical thinking skills using built-in video capabilities. They can share and interact with others through gamification, earning awards and badges for progress and accomplishments. Learning has never been as fun and social.
