Purdue University Creates a Foundation for e-Learning Success

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.

Tshwane University of Technology – Delivering continuous learning experiences on and off campus

Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) is the largest residential university in South Africa, attracting around 65,000 students a year. Widely known as a people’s university, TUT offers a rich multicultural student life, makes higher education accessible to students from all walks of life and helps create employability among the youth population of South Africa. 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.

Ultimate Medical Academy – Reimagining the learning experience

To enhance the student experience for both its online and blended learning pathways, Ultimate Medical Academy (UMA) realized it needed to replace its legacy learning management system (LMS) with a more modern platform: D2L Brightspace. How could UMA and D2L deliver this large and complex change without disrupting the learning experience for students and faculty?

Saskatchewan Indian Institute of Technologies (SIIT) – Supporting First Nations communities

SIIT has always focused on supporting First Nations people in their own communities. Each year, SIIT helps hundreds of students develop skills and set career goals through its JobSeries programs. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, delivering these programs in First Nations communities was no longer possible. SIIT worked with D2L to build an accessible, user-friendly, and equitable online learning platform that helps students thrive.

Georgia State University – Breaking down barriers to student success

When students enroll at Georgia State University (GSU), their ethnicity and income level are not predictors of whether they will graduate with a degree. For the past six years, African American, Latinx and Pell Grant students have graduated at or above the rate of the student body overall, and GSU has conferred more bachelor’s degrees to African American students than any other institution in the United States. So, what’s GSU doing differently? The answer lies in its sophisticated use of data and analytics.

Northeastern Technical College – Starting adventures in online learning

Northeastern Technical College (NETC) has a mission to show underserved students the value of technical education and open their eyes to the opportunities available in their local communities. For students who may be the first in their family to go to college, mentorship and support are vital. That’s why NETC is using D2L Brightspace to provide students with an engaging, supportive college experience, even when they’re studying at home.
