FAQs About Learning and Creative Services

  • In addition to creating consistent, accessible, responsive and engaging (CARE) content in HTML, we can use rapid authoring tools like Articulate 360 to make your content come alive. We can output your content as a SCORM package if you’d like for portability across courses and outside Brightspace.

  • We can support content writing on any subject, but we do require access to a subject matter expert to verify the work. Our Instructional Designers have a wealth of experience designing courses from many backgrounds.

  • On any project for coursework, you’ll have a Project Manager and an Instructional Designer who will coordinate your course outcomes, content and assessment strategies. Our team of Instructional Designers are experts in mixed modality delivery of materials along with meaningful formative and summative assessment practices to make your courses engaging and effective. We begin with aligning our objectives and conducting a thorough analysis of your particular course needs to arrive at a course design that works for you and your learners. We go through a series of design iterations before putting your materials into the Brightspace platform, conducting internal and stakeholder reviews for quality assurance, and then launching your course in your Brightspace environment. We end each project by providing documentation and training on keeping your courses up to date.

  • HTML provides us greater flexibility than working with authoring tools that limit learning opportunities. We can better brand and add custom tools to provide you with a highly personalized course design experience.

  • Higher education courses typically take us anywhere from 10 to 16 weeks to deliver, and on the corporate side, we can create smaller one-hour courses in as little as four weeks. With over 70 people on staff, we can build dozens of courses at once to meet your timelines.

Hear What Our Customers Have to Say

We teamed with the Creative Services team to implement 5 new widgets that were not part of our initial environment. They were very helpful and efficient in improving the UI for our learners. Katrina Stafford LMS Administrator, ITSE
With our initial plan, I was hesitant to engage Learning and Creative Services, because we have great designers in our own team. But the two-week runway changed my mind! Once we started working with the D2L designers, it was so seamless and so amazing. Together, we came up with a launch plan, working out what we needed to get off the ground and what we could roll out in later iterations. Jenelle Hodges Director of Digital Learning, CHIME
The team at D2L Learning and Creative Services was excellent. They took the time to understand our vision and explained how we could overcome complex technical challenges in terms that made sense to us. The ability to communicate a new idea and have the Creative team translate it into reality sets D2L apart from less versatile platforms. Krista Walford Executive Staff Member, Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO)
Much of our content is very technical, so it can be heavy going for learners. D2L made it much more interactive, more appealing and more professional-looking. It was a super-positive experience working with D2L’s Learning and Creative Services team. Sophie Webber Head of Training and Events, Grain and Feed Trade Association (Gafta)
The learning and creative services team was instrumental in helping build a series of truly engaging online training courses, providing us with a development space where we could take risks and incorporate nontraditional styles of learning into each module. Quintin Fox Director of Training Development, Gay Lea Foods
