How can D2L’s Brightspace platform support your research institution?

In this digital age of education, time is one thing there is never enough of. When it comes to supporting your staff, faculty and students in their research and studies – you need a technology platform that is robust enough to handle your institutional needs now and into the future. Brightspace is the platform built with accessibility top of mind and is flexible, customizable and full of the data you need to make smart decisions.

The new D2L

Over the past three years, D2L went through a major transformative change. This included moving to cloud hosted infrastructure powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), and rolling out a new user interface and experience making it easier for users to navigate and interact within the Brightspace platform.

We listened to our partners and educators worldwide, and we delivered on the promise to:

  • Build a platform that works on any device
  • Make it easier to grade student work
  • Increase our market lead in drag-and-drop functionality
  • Make it fast and intuitive to create assessments and design rubrics

Why Brightspace?

Work anywhere, on any device
Brightspace is the only major Learning Management System (LMS) platform that is built fully responsive from the ground up to work on any device. Other platforms rely on students to have the latest device and download their apps, which do not have the full features of the learning platform.

Act on your data
Your data should always be easy to access. Brightspace helps you track student engagement and learner outcomes, optimize your course effectiveness, and pull reports that assist with your accreditation process all within user-friendly data sets.

Promote social engagement
Enhance learning by using social activity feeds and discussion groups within the Brightspace platform, just like on social media. Allow students to share resources and experiences with their faculty and peers.

Easily build content with accessibility in mind
Learners of every ability should have equal access to their education. That’s why we here at D2L hold ourselves—and our platform—to the highest standards of accessibility.

See why Brightspace can be the perfect fit for your institution.

Besides competing for grants and contributing to scholarships, research institutions face new challenges in the modern market. There are new opportunities for growing the institutional brand, finding alternate sources of revenue, and increasing the focus on student success and learner achievement. In order to compete in this new landscape, research institutions should take advantage of a learning platform that is flexible enough to support new approaches, yet intuitive enough to empower users to feel confident.
