D2L (Desire2Learn) was founded in 1999 by John Baker. At the time, his engineering class was being challenged to look at the world in new ways by coming up with questions that no one had asked before.
John realized that despite all the change technology was driving in the world, his University campus seemed almost untouched by that momentum. The question he wanted to ask was clear: how could we use technology to dramatically transform learning?
He’s come to believe that one of the most important things we can do to help each other is to ensure that everyone has access to the best possible learning opportunities. Today, D2L is working with customers around the world to help learners at a scale that was hard to imagine in 1999.
Here at D2L, we see our user base as partners rather than customers, and have built a caring community of peers across all learning environments. We pride ourselves on being more than just an LMS vendor, and go the extra mile to help our partners get the most out of the Brightspace learning management system.
We provide a whole host of support for our partners with the core goal of maximising engagement with their learners. With creative services and consultations, you can rely on experts to help build world-class offerings and content that resonates with your learners.
