Desire2Learn Announces Local Presence in Brazil, Offering Edtech Solutions that Personalize Learning and Improve Graduation Rates

Desire2Learn will participate in the 19th CIAED ABED Conference in Salvador, scheduled for September 9-12, 2013.

Desire2Learn Incorporated (“Desire2Learn”), the EdTech company that created the world’s first truly integrated learning platform, announces that it has established a local presence in Brazil to offer its learning technology, which provides powerful analytics capabilities, increases student engagement, and improves graduation rates.

Desire2Learn Integrated Learning Platform supports online and blended learning and is equipped with course design capabilities, extensive reporting functionality, and in-depth assessment and collaboration options.

The newest release also brings the power of predictive analytics to the learning industry with the Student Success System™. This analytics engine delivers fact-based insights on learning progress, empowering instructors to better engage learners and ultimately improve course and degree attainment rates. The new Learning platform also includes advancements to mobile learning with Desire2Learn Binder™, a powerful mobile learning app, and Desire2Learn ePortfolio, an interactive resume that enables learners to develop rich portfolios and build on them after they graduate.

“Desire2Learn is committed to making learning accessible and successful for all,” said Dan Novais, Senior Sales Director for Latin America at Desire2Learn. “The quality of Brazilian educational institutions is recognized around the world, however economic conditions often affect continuation rates. Our technology and the incorporation of analytics is the key to increasing college graduate rates.”
