Nova Scotia College of Early Childhood Education Chooses D2L’s Brightspace LMS

Press Release

Diploma Program Now Accessible to Learners Across the Province

D2L, the global learning technology leader, announces that the Nova Scotia College of Early Childhood Education (NSCECE) has chosen its Brightspace Learning Management System (LMS) to reach more learners across the province to address a shortage of early childhood educators.

Nova Scotia College of Early Childhood Education (NSCECE) is a non-profit post-secondary educational environment overseen by a Board of Directors. They offer a two-year diploma in Early Childhood Education with 600 hours of hands-on practical experience in child care centers. Given the need for more flexible training options to increase the number of Early Childhood Educators throughout Nova Scotia, NSCECE is using Brightspace to develop a blended or online-only learning environment to adapt to every student’s learning style. NSCECE will now be able to provide a quality learning experience to students that, due to geography or time constraints, cannot attend class on campus or study full-time.

“To attract more Early Childhood Educators into our field and provide training upgrades to those currently in the workforce, we need to connect with learners far beyond our campus and offer a high-quality learning experience and the best content,” said Derrick Tobin, Executive Director of the NSCECE. “Brightspace can do this and much more. The intuitive interface, easy course development, and features to monitor and communicate with students in real-time have elevated even our own expectations on what is possible in education.”

“By choosing Brightspace, NSCECE is launching a new way to connect and engage with all learners interested in early childhood education – regardless of location,” said John Baker, President and CEO of D2L. “We look forward to building a lasting partnership and supporting the college as they expand enrollment online and on campus.”

With Brightspace, the ECE program will enable learners to work at their own pace, pursue a career in ECE, or enhance their existing skills and knowledge.
