Why D2L?

We’re on a Mission to Transform the Way the World Learns

At D2L, we’re driven by the belief that everyone deserves access to high-quality education, regardless of age, ability or location. So, the accessibility of our learning platforms—D2L Brightspace and D2L Wave—happens by design. They enhance the experience for millions of learners at every stage of life, from the earliest days of school to the working world.

Distinctly D2L

We understand learning. More importantly, we know modern learning. That’s because we’ve made it our mission to transform the way the world learns.  

We unify a diverse and fragmented learning market through a powerful tech ecosystem supported by more than 20 years of expertise and a vision for the future of work and learning. We’re focused on creating unique learner-centric platforms backed by learning science that increase adoption, retention, engagement and deliver on learning outcomes. 

Our Platforms are Built to Personalize Learning at Scale

Over the past two decades, we’ve been laser-focused on keeping pace with the evolving needs of education and the economy. That’s why we utilize the same underlying (and award-winning) technology to serve all our customers, allowing advancements to be utilized by learners at every level of their journey and addressing their individual educational needs.

After a lengthy vendor-selection process, we decided to partner with D2L. They’re very well known for their work in education—and for building their portfolio in the corporate space—and we found them to be a great partner for what we wanted to do. Not only does the Brightspace platform have the functionality to deliver multiple types of media, but it also acts as an extension of our technology stack and offers all the data and reporting tools we needed.
