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.

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

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.

The only downside of teachers at the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board (HWDSB) loving their new Web 2.0 tools was that they loved a very wide variety of them. They all had different usernames, passwords, and URLs. While the Board used a standardized blogging platform built in-house, they were also branching out in different areas to use different Learning Management System (LMS) tools. That meant they were unable to support one another and, since they were being hosted in a variety of spaces, it was next to impossible for the Board to provide guidance.
Through an agreement with the Ontario Ministry of Education, Brightspace is available to school boards across the province to support online and blended learning programs. The London District Catholic School Board (LDCSB) is one board taking full advantage of the program and is now extending its use of Brightspace to leverage the Learning Management System (LMS) for the delivery of professional learning curriculum to staff, teachers, and principals.
Gwinnett Online Campus (GOC) is the oldest online educational program in the state of Georgia. The school began serving students in 2009. In 2010, it adopted Brightspace as its learning platform. In the fall of 2011, GOC became a full-time charter school. They now serve over 5,000 students through full-time and supplemental programs.
