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.

- Joy Karavedas, Senior Director of Research and New Program Development, Orange Lutheran High School

A three-year exercise in frustration became a three-month pathway to success once we started to work with D2L.

- Michael Crowe, Vice President Academic, Bow Valley College

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.

Helping online learners achieve academic success

Sinclair Community College identified a significant attainment gap between online and in-person learners. To provide better support for online courses, the college developed Coaching to Complete, an innovative coaching program powered by D2L Brightspace. As a direct result, the college has helped thousands of students improve their grades and increase motivation.

Using Professional Development to Build a More Inclusive Workforce

As technology makes the world smaller and more connected, workplaces have become more diverse, and the emphasis on allyship and inclusion is more critical than ever. While many acknowledge the importance of these skills and their application in the workplace, professional development initiatives to build these skills are often underused. To tackle this gap and become more inclusive within their own department, the customer success team at D2L used the D2L Wave platform to make professional development a team-building initiative.

Raising Mental Health Awareness in Schools

Children and young adults are facing an unprecedented mental health crisis. Each year, more young people are reaching out to mental health crisis support lines. To encourage students to reflect on their mental wellbeing and seek support when they need it, The Robb Nash Project created a safe, virtual space where they can explore complex topics with compassion, understanding, and professional support.​

Creating a dynamic online learning experience

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.

Modernizing university education with digital learning

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.

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.
