MORE THAN 1,000 ORGANIZATIONS IN OVER 40 COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD RELY ON D2L TO HELP THEM TRANSFORM LEARNING.
Our working relationship with D2L has been wonderful. They're so far above some of the other LMS platforms that I've had the opportunity to work with.

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.

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. As pandemic restrictions eased and students returned to the campus, the organization decided to build on the success of remote learning by supporting a variety of blended learning approaches.
Keen to expand its liberal arts and other programs, McKendree University set out to encourage more students to embrace online learning. To achieve this, the university replaced its inefficient and costly learning management system (LMS) with D2L Brightspace. It also leveraged a Learning Administration Manager (LAM) service offering to help streamline administrative tasks and implement best practices.
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 (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.
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?
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.
