Easily Access Your Content

Course Packs are the only curriculum-based digital resource available that can be seamlessly integrated into your LMS. This can save teachers hours of work creating content, making that content engaging, creating assessments, and linking everything to curriculum expectations.

Not only is the content already built and ready for teachers and students to use, but teachers know that the content they are using is 100% aligned to the expectations set by the Ontario Ministry of Education. Plus, all of the content and all the assessments included in the Course Pack will already be linked to curriculum outcomes and rubrics in Brightspace, so you can track which outcomes you are covering with your students as they progress through the course material. This will give teachers, administrators, students, and parents an unprecedented level of insight into student outcomes and progress in each course.​

No Course Left Behind

Many courses, especially at the elementary level, don’t have any curriculum-aligned resources available, leaving it up to teachers to create their own course content.

  • D2L is investing heavily in developing curriculum-based resources for all Ontario courses, starting with Course Packs for Grade 1 – 8 Math, and expanding into all subject areas and Grade levels
  • Each Course Pack will be submitted to the Trillium List and will be designed to meet all curriculum expectations set by the Ontario Ministry of Education​​
  • Having Course Packs for all subject areas will provide a consistent learning experience for students in all subjects and across multiple grade levels

Use in Class and at Home

Many of the curriculum-aligned resources currently on the market are available only in print and cannot be used in an online learning environment.​ Course Packs provide online access to high-quality content and can be used in the classroom and at home. ​Regardless of whether schools are open in September, Course Packs arm teachers and students with the information they need to meet curriculum expectations.

Built-In Assessment for, as, and of Learning

Most curriculum-aligned resources don’t include interactive assessments for students, which are often provided by teachers separately​. Each Course Pack includes built-in assessments for, as, and of learning. There are practice activities and self-assessments populated throughout student content, as well as assignments, quizzes, and tests for teachers to choose from. ​Teachers also have the flexibility of creating their own assignments, tests, and quizzes and can customize how to make them available to their students.

Engaging Course Material

Most curriculum-aligned digital resources are static PDFs or ePub files with limited interaction and engagement opportunities for students.​

  • All of the interactive features available as part of the Brightspace platform are embedded in course content, making it more engaging for students
  • Course Packs include video, animations, and activities that students can interact with as they progress through the course material
  • Teachers can also customize what content is available to students
