D2L’s expertise in digital learning helps make a positive impact for associations

Press Release

A global learning technology company D2L is continuing to make an impact on national and regional associations by delivering high-quality educational experiences for learners, educators and administrators.

Accelerated by the pandemic and market disruptions, many associations are re-thinking their digital strategies. As the landscape continues to evolve, many associations are diversifying their offerings through virtual and remote learning and events. According to a recent research study by D2L and the Training Industry, that included 125 membership-based organizations, taking learning online has proved to be a viable way for associations to futureproof.

D2L Brightspace, a learning innovation platform, is helping associations solve new business challenges, reach a digital global market, and stay steps ahead. Designed and supported by a team of digital learning experts, Brightspace helps provide associations with one of the best-in-class learning experiences that can motivate, engage and inspire members.

D2L Brightspace’s continuing education and professional development opportunities have been a differentiator for some top National Associations, including:

  • College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) – CHIME is the professional organization for Chief Information Officers and other senior healthcare IT leaders. Selecting D2L Brightspace in 2020, CHIME provides its members with online learning courses from the healthcare industry’s top CIOs, firms, healthcare suppliers and consultants who speak about the most pressing healthcare issues.
  • The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) – AHIMA is a voice and authority in health information. Working with D2L Brightspace since 2019, AHIMA delivers online professional certificate programs to adult learners to help them upskill and earn credentials and certificates related to medical coding, clinical documentation, data and information security, document integrity and more.
  • Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) – TCIA is a trade association of 2,300 tree care firms and affiliated companies, developing safety and education programs, standards of tree care practice and management information for tree and landscape firms around the world. Implementing D2L Brightspace in 2020, TCIA has shifted their educational programs towards digital, blended learning –recognizing the importance of supporting a variety of different learning preferences and experiences to support and promote the safe and appropriate practice of tree care.

“Brightspace, our cloud-based learning innovation platform, is built for associations to create engaging learning experiences for members,” said John Baker, President and CEO at D2L. “With over 20 years of experience, our success and expertise in digital learning make us an impactful partner in delivering professional development and education opportunities as a key member benefit to associations across the globe.”
