D2L Open Courses

D2L Open Courses is a service that helps organizations create and deliver Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) to help more learners around the world reach their potential.

  • Offer one or more MOOCs without the need to manage a separate LMS or registration system. Courses are powered by the Brightspace platform, allowing your instructors to leverage the many teaching and learning tools to quickly and easily build great learning experiences. Import your existing course content or leverage D2L’s Learning and Creative Services team to design and build the online course materials for you.

  • Extend your reach to learners anywhere in the world. MOOCs are listed in a public catalog, making it easy for learners to find and register for your courses online. Backed by the Brightspace platform, your MOOC will engage learners with content that meets their needs, allowing them to learn on their terms, at their pace, and on any device.

  • Flexible content delivery options allow you to offer your MOOCs at any time during the year either at no cost to the learner or by charging up-front registration fees. Badges or certificates are available to be awarded to learners upon the successful completion of a course.

We knew that technology could enable us to provide an instant view into our world at Longwood and communicate our knowledge to a much larger audience than we have traditionally been able to reach. By providing a great online experience, we would help audiences understand the relevance of our work and its importance to global horticulture.
