Having everything at your fingertips can help save time, increase productivity, multiply your impact, and let you focus on what you do best.

Blend Seamlessly with the Technology Ecosystem

D2L will partner with school districts to support educator use of the tools they love through Brightspace integrations. Rather than the complete disruption of introducing a new tool, instructors can continue to use their favorite products while unlocking the advanced power and functionality of Brightspace.
