IMS Global Learning Consortium Certification

All good vendors allow integration and interoperability, but standards certification is important too—they are a great way for institutions to independently verify interoperability. It’s an important part of assessing your vendors’ commitment to openness and avoids surprise costs or long-term lock-ins.

We are committed to open standards, which allow our customers to integrate necessary administrative tools, and teaching and learning tools to seamlessly create richer experiences. David Koehn, our Senior Vice President of Product Management, was elected to a three-year term on the IMS Global Consortium Board of Directors. We also have award-winning D2L staff involved in project groups and product steering committees to help define, implement, and encourage acceptance of standards.

Our Certifications

D2L’s Brightspace platform helps you deliver a personalized learning experience for anyone, no matter where they are. We continue to lead the industry in number of certifications held with IMS Global, and were the first commercial LMS to be certified for IMS Learning Information Services (LIS), only days after conformance tests were finalized.
