When the COVID pandemic swept across Canada, the University of Waterloo leveraged its D2L and Bongo solutions to help maintain high-quality teaching despite regional lockdowns.

Keen to expand its liberal arts and other programs, McKendree University set out to encourage more students to embrace online learning.

Starting university is a major milestone for students in their academic careers. It’s a time of new opportunities and challenges—and never has that been truer than for students during the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of navigating a new campus, students had to adapt to online learning at the same time as their educators and administrators. Purdue University rose to the challenge with Learning Online 101, a self-paced Brightspace course created to help students adapt to virtual and dynamic learning environments. The course materials were designed to help students find answers to common questions about virtual learning and connect them with the university’s support services and learning resources.

In 2020/21 TUT succeeded in putting the D2L Brightspace learning platform at the heart of its university’s learning experience for tens of thousands of students.
