D2L will benefit from RepresentEdTech’s 25 years’ experience and keen understanding of the Nordics to maintain EMEA expansion
D2L, a global learning technology leader, has selected education technology agency and consultancy RepresentEdTech as a value-added reseller of D2L’s Brightspace platform across the Nordics.
D2L has seen great levels of success and extended reach across EMEA, with more customers turning to the Brightspace platform to deliver the personalised learning experience and improved outcomes that their learners demand. Most recently, Denmark’s Aarhus University selected Brightspace to support its adaptive learning goals, benefitting from the platform’s ability to tailor course delivery according to the specific needs of students.
As a result of this new partnership, D2L will benefit from RepresentEdTech’s wealth of knowledge of the Nordics edtech market. Founded on more than 25 years of direct experience, the RepresentEdTech team consists of former Urkund Creative Director and co-founder, Jonas Lundqvist, and former Urkund EMEA Sales Director, James Bennett, both of whom are passionate about D2L’s technology, education ethos and ambitions for expansion in the region.
“We are delighted to start working with RepresentEdTech to further our commitment to existing and prospective customers in the Nordics,” said Peter Blakey, EMEA Channel Manager, D2L. “We’ve seen some great traction so far and are collaborating with a number of organisations in the region. Jonas and James demonstrate a truly impressive understanding of the market, and will play a key role in helping D2L reach even more educational institutions and enterprises with the benefits of Brightspace in the years to come”.
“This is a very exciting partnership,” said James Bennett, RepresentEdTech CEO. “D2L’s Brightspace platform represents a best-of-breed modern learning platform, with a rich feature set that’s really pushing forward new pedagogical methods around the globe. We’re keen to use our knowledge, experience and contacts to help introduce Brightspace to more schools, universities and businesses across these three countries, and help support D2L’s momentum across the EMEA region as a whole.”
