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
