The New D2L

In 2015, D2L underwent a major transformation as we repositioned towards becoming fully cloud hosted, delivering a reliable 99.9% uptime, and implementing a new user-interface and experience to make Brightspace a fully responsive platform from the ground up on any device.

Why the big change? We listened to our partners and educators worldwide and delivered on our promise to:

  • Build a platform that works on any device
  • Make it easier to grade student work
  • Increase our market lead in drag & drop functionality
  • Make it fast and intuitive to create assessments and design rubrics

Why Brightspace?

1) Work anywhere, on any device

Brightspace is the only major LMS platform that is built fully responsive from the ground up to work on any device. Other platforms rely on students to have the latest device and download their apps, which do not have the full features of the learning platform.

2) Act on your data Your data should always be easy to access. Brightspace helps you track student engagement, learner outcomes, help optimize your course effectiveness and pull reports that assist with your accreditation process all within user-friendly data sets.

3) Promote social engagement

Enhance learning by using Brightspace’s social activity feeds and discussion groups, just like on social media. Allow students to share resources and experiences with their faculty and peers.

4) Build accessible content easily

Learners of every ability should have equal access to their education. That’s why we here at D2L align ourselves, and our platform, to the highest standards of accessibility.
