You should absolutely, 100% go with D2L. I’ve been with them for 11 years. The system is incredibly stable. It’s incredibly flexible because what you need right now today may not be the same thing you need five years from now. Businesses evolve. Customers evolve. Things change, and D2L changes with you.

Rising rates of students studying online, part time and from abroad are challenging educators to create more equitable learning opportunities. Meaghan Danby, of Deakin University in Australia, has been awarded a 2023 D2L Excellence Award for the online interview simulation she created in D2L Brightspace. The simulation is an equitable access resource that helps learners practice skills and receive high-quality feedback. It presents students with a virtual interviewee and has them navigate the role of interviewer by selecting questions to ask, and formative feedback is delivered in real time. The simulation has significantly improved self-guided learning: There has been a more than 40% rise in students accessing D2L resources to help with their interviewing skills.
