Latest Version of Desire2Learn Learning Suite Continues Innovative and Transformative Educational Experience

Press Release

In partnership with educators, Desire2Learn is creating a revolutionary, integrated and innovative environment for learning

Desire2Learn Incorporated (“Desire2Learn”), a leading provider of enterprise teaching and learning platforms, today announced the release of its latest version of Desire2Learn Learning Suite.

“This latest release of Desire2Learn Learning Suite is reflective of the transformation being experienced in education today. Integrated social networking and rich media support paired with superior productivity, usability and personal organization capabilities are truly bringing education to the next level,” says Kenneth Chapman, Senior Director of Product Strategy, Desire2Learn Incorporated.

The features within Desire2Learn Learning Suite, developed together with educators and in consultation with clients, are taking education beyond the linear, text-based learning environment creating a learning environment that is opening up and expanding opportunities for learning.

“The ability to give feedback to students in a variety of ways has been wonderful and I know that in version 9.4 we will be able to use auditory feedback straight into the dropbox. That to me is innovative; that is a time saver and it makes teachers jobs easier.” – John Willoughby, Faculty Advisor, Pamoja Education

Key capabilities of the new release include:

  • Integrated social learning that supports simplified connecting and sharing with friends and colleagues through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+
  • Efficient assessment, feedback and grading capabilities making the on-line marking process simple
  • Expanded notification tools for learners and educators ensuring assignment, tests and critical dates are never missed
  • Powerful performance and assessment tracking capabilities for blended learning environments through innovative seating chart functionality. This tool is rethinking the interface for interacting with students and classmates online  making it more visual and engaging.

Details of the capabilities can be found in the pre-release announcement.

The new features of Desire2Learn Learning Suite are included as components of the platforms at no additional cost to clients.

“By driving innovation pursuing advancements in education and weaving in the tools and technical capabilities that encourage and support student participation we’re enriching the online learning experience. In turn, educators are able to develop new ways of questioning, discovering and learning,” states John Baker, President & CEO, Desire2Learn.
