Bursting Silver and D2L Deliver Online Learning as Partners

Leading IT Solutions Provider Uses Brightspace to Educate Its Customers

Press Release

Global learning technology leader D2L announced today that it is partnering with Toronto-based Bursting Silver Inc. to provide online learning for their customer base. Bursting Silver is a leading information technology company specializing in delivering membership management and online learning for clients in the association, regulatory, and union sectors.

Bursting Silver needed a learning management system that was a proven market leader, backed by a strong implementation and support team, and integrated well with the iMIS and customer relationship management products they already had in place.

D2L’s Brightspace platform met all those criteria, and more.

“Our clients are continually looking for ways to strengthen their relationships with their members and support them throughout their member journey” says Al Povoledo, Partner and CEO of Bursting Silver. “With D2L, we are now able to provide our clients with an online education platform that engages their membership. The platform offers easy ways to build certification and continuing education programs, and online training. We’re also able to integrate this experience with their CRM systems to create a 360-degree view of their members.”

“We’re really excited to be working with the Bursting Silver team,” says John Baker, president and CEO of D2L. “They’re a fast-growing player in the Canadian IT space and are on a great trajectory. We’re looking forward to working with them to serve their customers for years to come as we grow and innovate together.”
