We understand that not every student has progressed in the same way and that schools and educators have been stretched. With over 20 years of experience transforming learning, we also understand the importance of supporting districts to address immediate learning needs while also developing an adaptable, long-term infrastructure.

U.S. federal relief funding and educational attention are focused on student “learning loss” resulting from the pandemic. We empathize with educators and families concerned that a deficit approach may run counter to student academic and mindset growth. The Brightspace LMS can help with solutions that facilitate both the acceleration of student learning now and the building of a more student-centered, resilient instructional approach for the future.

Flexible Access to Learning with Brightspace

Every learner needs access to education that supports their success, regardless of circumstance. Whether by choice or necessity, there is increasing need and expectation for flexible access to learning. The Brightspace LMS is built to provide curriculum access, instructional interaction, and learner engagement at any time, from anywhere, and through disruptions to traditional learning environments.

Designed from the ground up for mobile access, students, educators and parents can access from any device. Brightspace offers multiple channels for direct communication, both synchronous and asynchronous, and accommodates flexible learning options, like blended and virtual, to best suit your student and community needs. As the environment changes, access to learning doesn’t have to.

Personalized Learning for Every Student

​Creating personalized learning opportunities that meet students where they are and help them to achieve outcomes are critical for student success. Brightspace is built to accommodate all students, whatever their needs and however they learn best. Teachers have the flexibility to differentiate instruction and personalize support. They can create custom learning paths and provide accommodations for diverse student needs. Brightspace enables alternative metrics of engagement and progression, such as for mastery learning, and for non-readers and students requiring language support.

Accessibility and universal design for learning are front and center at D2L. We align our development process with global accessibility standards, so teachers know they are creating an accessible environment.

Meaningful Data to Enable Student Growth and Engagement

Lost instructional opportunity during the pandemic means we need to make even more effective use of the most precious resource—the time of students and teachers. Powerful data and analytics tools within Brightspace help administrators, educators, and learners save that precious time while maximizing impact and driving success. Teachers can easily track and improve student engagement and initiate evidence-based interventions where required. Built-in dashboards can help teachers identify struggling and/or excelling students to provide tailored support.

When we arm teachers with the ability to understand where each student is at and help them personalize instruction, we help ensure each student has the best chance of succeeding. Teachers can track student engagement in their course content, tasks, and assessment even during hybrid and asynchronous learning.

Assessment Tools to Evaluate Mastery of Learning

The variances in student progress have increased during the pandemic, and schools now more than ever need support to understand student strengths and gaps. With Brightspace, teachers have the flexibility to assess students’ progress as a part of the teaching and learning process to assist in meeting students’ needs. The Brightspace LMS supports a variety of assessment tools, allowing students to demonstrate their knowledge in multiple ways. Students, parents, and educators can track progress toward mastery over time and reflect on feedback throughout the process.

With a direct window in the classroom, parents and families are made aware of how they can effectively support their students. Brightspace for Parents allows authorized parents and guardians to log in to see their child’s classroom activity feed, shared Portfolio items, graded items and graded feedback from instructors, upcoming assignments, and quizzes. Brightspace is accessible from any device, so even the hardest-to-reach parents can stay in touch.
