Why D2L?

We’re on a Mission to Transform the Way the World Learns

At D2L, we’re driven by the belief that everyone deserves access to high-quality education, regardless of age, ability, or location. So, the accessibility of our learning platform—D2L Brightspace—happens by design. They enhance the experience for millions of learners at every stage of life, from the earliest days of school to the working world.

Distinctly D2L

We understand learning. More importantly, we know modern learning. That’s because we’ve made it our mission to transform the way the world learns.  

We unify a diverse and fragmented learning market through a powerful tech ecosystem supported by more than 20 years of expertise and a vision for the future of work and learning. We’re focused on creating unique learner-centric platforms backed by learning science that increase adoption, retention, engagement and deliver on learning outcomes. 

Our Platforms are Built to Personalise Learning at Scale

Hear What Our Customers Have to Say

“The D2L Brightspace platform has allowed us to make a e-learning personalised and accessible for all our learners and partners. We’ve been able to share resources and experiences which has had a positive impact across the sporting system, as well as saving time and costs. A particular benefit has been the ability to give partners their own identity through logos and templates in their own site, while still being part of the one learning site for sport in Scotland.” Sportscotland
