D2L’s Winning Streak Continues

Prominent Industry Analyst Recognizes Brightspace with Two Awards

Press Release

Global learning technology leader D2L announced today that highly-regarded learning industry analyst Craig Weiss has named its Brightspace platform as the top learning management system for both EdTech and Associations. D2L was an award-winner in the Associations category last year.

Craig Weiss is the CEO of the Craig Weiss Group, founder of FindAnLMS and write the E-Learning 24/7 blog, which is read in more than 170 countries and territories around the world.

“In 2020, under the most challenging circumstances any of us have ever seen, D2L has stepped up to help their customers do what matters most, which is keeping learners learning,” says Weiss. “They’ve built on what was already a very strong platform by focusing on constantly improving while never losing sight of their main mission, which is to revolutionize the way the world learns. These awards are a well-deserved recognition of that achievement. Congratulations to everyone at D2L on a job well done.”

“Craig’s a leading voice in this industry, so we were thrilled when he named us top learning management system for Associations a year ago,” says John Baker, CEO of D2L. “To earn that award again, and to add to it the recognition of Brightspace as the leading platform in EdTech, is both humbling and gratify. 2020 will be remembered as the year when online learning 0went from being an option to an essential service, and I’m proud of the role D2L has played in rising to that challenge. On behalf of everyone at D2L, I want to thank Craig for this validation of our efforts.”
