MORE THAN 1,000 ORGANIZATIONS IN OVER 40 COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD RELY ON D2L TO HELP THEM TRANSFORM LEARNING.
In the spring of 2020, schools in the UK transitioned to distance learning as the COVID-19 pandemic forced full or partial building closures and confined students to home. For West Bridgford School (WBS), rapidly adjusting to the change meant expanding its existing use of D2L’s Brightspace to deliver virtual classrooms, online assessments and interactive discussion forums. Since 2017 the high-performing school for students aged 11−18 has used Brightspace to extend learning beyond the classroom, delivering personalised and flexible student experiences. This foundation in online learning meant it was well placed to make a rapid and successful adjustment when the crisis hit.
How engaging learning experiences have helped a University of Huddersfield professor achieve 100 percent pass rates

Advance HE recognises the important role that CPD plays in supporting individual development for those working in higher education. CPD is not simply attending a conference or an item to be checked off a to-do list; it is a way in which teaching professionals can transform their practice on a daily basis. Through using a virtual classroom in D2L’s Brightspace platform for reading groups and webinars, and working with those that are new to teaching, Advance HE not only helps to further CPD, but creates a community of learners globally who can interact online.
Advance HE’s purpose is to advance the professional practice of higher education to improve outcomes for the benefit of students, staff and society. As part of this mission, Advance HE champions teaching excellence and works with governments, ministries, universities and individual academics in the UK and around the globe, providing value to the higher education sector by focusing on the contribution of teaching as part of the wider student learning experience.
