D2L was very clearly focused on education, so working with them was very helpful to think through our education and implementation strategy with pedagogy at its core, getting what we needed based on our educational goals and not the IT aspect of the implementation.
We set up a whole change programme where teachers and students were involved in advisory boards, which was really helpful when rolling out Brightspace, and getting a lot of people enthusiastic about it. Wich they are! We wanted to offer the same learning experience for everyone.
Our learners are often eager to learn, yet they are time-constrained and on-the-go, which means they require an adaptable, flexible learning platform that they can engage with when and where it suits them. Brightspace stood out in this respect. The platform is extremely easy to use and can be tailored to each learner’s lifestyle and skillset ¾ something that is very important for us.
