Wendy Drake from Bournemouth University highlights students’ love for Brightspace and how working with D2L proved to be a genuine partnership to ensure personalised learning!
Bournemouth University is a global leader in media development and home to the Centre for Excellence in Media Practice. The university supports more than 20,000 students, with alumni who have worked on Oscar-winning films.
After a really lengthy and tender process, we did some useability testing and we involved students and staff so that everybody had an opportunity to look at the different solutions that were available and the students absolutely loved the Brightspace offering.
Intuitive design drives platform adoption.
Students liked the simplicity of the design and they were already starting to think about how they would work within it and the offering that eportfolio gave them in comparison to what we had already got
Customisation for every need.
The partnership with D2L I think gives us some great opportunities working with the team. I feel like we’ve got an extension to our staff it doesn’t feel like we’re working with an external provider it feels like we’re working with another department within the university.
Powerful analytics make assessment easy.
The student success system is a fantastic offering that is going to give us something that we haven’t had before with an understanding and a measure of how a student is progressing in terms of their degree in their learning.
Leading pedagogical change in academia.
At Bournemouth University we’re in the process of doing a bigger project than just the VLE implementation and part of that is a big culture change piece with our academics and so this is really giving us an opportunity to embed some new pedagogical approaches for our academics and with an inspiring environment, it will all bring the whole piece together. It gives us a great opportunity for enhancing the learning situation and performance.
