D2L is proud to announce that Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) has selected Brightspace to modernize their teaching and learning experience and offer a dynamic learning management system (LMS).

“Technology is at the heart of teaching and learning and at the heart of our business as educators. Our mission is to serve students in the best way, so we looked for a best-in-class LMS that could bring our capabilities to the next level,” explained Tom Dionisio SVP Technology of SNHU. “We selected Brightspace as it enables our instructors to address student’s unique needs, engage them, and offer a modern, mobile learning experience. With Brightspace, SNHU is on the global playing field, engaging our learners, personalizing learning and using the most innovative teaching models available today.”

SNHU embarked on an extensive LMS review to meet the changing needs of their students. The University required a learning experience that was easy, modern, and worked on any device. Brightspace provides a best-in-class student experience and the flexibility to personalize learning.
