Why partner with D2L?

Facilitating learner success and enhancing organizational effectiveness can be difficult objectives for anyone to achieve alone—that’s why our approach emphasizes the importance of collaboration. To help make our collective goals a reality, we partner with leading educational technology and content providers who share our passion for improving learning.

What’s in it for you?

As a valued member of the Brightspace Partner Network, you may have the opportunity to:

  • Integrate your solutions within Brightspace, the world’s first truly integrated learning platform
  • Work with D2L to develop superior solutions together—solutions that will ultimately drive success for individual learners
  • Strengthen your relationships with more than 1,100 D2L clients (representing 15+ million learners) while uncovering new opportunities to promote your solutions in the higher education, K-12, healthcare, government, and enterprise sectors



How does it work?

Integration with the Brightspace platform

A signed partnership agreement and a simple LTI or API integration within Brightspace is only the beginning. With many of our partners, we take things a step further by providing a partner-branded LTI integration with the use of Remote Plugins. This allows their solution to live side-by-side with commonly used Brightspace tools.

Development of innovative solutions

We work strategically with many of our partners to identify how our jointly-developed learning solutions can be differentiated in the eyes of administrators, instructors, and students—the end users—and how they’re capable of addressing gaps that clients need addressed.

Uncovering of new opportunities

Once a solution has been developed, we help our partners uncover strategic opportunities to mutually drive adoption and ultimately improve learner success. Our contributions include:

  • Performing market research to help devise messaging and placement of a solution in-market
  • Examining D2L and partner account lists to identify sales opportunities for a solution
  • Training D2L and partner sales teams on a solution
  • Launching joint sales and marketing campaigns to promote a solution
