Describe your company's current technology and solutions
With D2L's 20+ years of experience helping K-12, post-secondary institutions, corporations and associations shift to fully online or blended learning, we have built a strong understanding of what is necessary to make learning work from any location and at any time. We're committed to working closely with our customers to develop tailored learning and development plans to cope with extended office and school closures.

Brightspace is D2L's cloud-based learning platform built by educators, for educators that works on any device. It is a secure, reliable platform that lets organizations create engaging courses using technology to fit your needs. With Brightspace, you can easily set up individualized learning paths for learners, keep them on track with automated nudges, give them personalized feedback and engage them through gamification, social tools, video and other powerful features.

Brightspace is the only learning platform chosen as a partner of the National Federation of the Blind's Centre of Excellence in Nonvisual Access.

Brightspace was named the #1 LMS for associations and #8 overall by prominent industry analyst Craig Weiss. It was also named the Best K-12 Learning Management System two years in a row and Best Professional Learning Solution for Faculty and Administrative Staff at the SIIA CODiE Awards. To learn more, visit the Corporate, Higher Education and K-12 pages on our website.

Despite school and office closures and the need for physical distancing in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, the D2L's Brightspace learning platform offers educators, employers, associations, learning development professionals, students, and employees the ability to continue to connect and learn face-to-face. Learning and instruction can continue without interruption, facilitated by a learning platform that enables a steady flow of learning/training coupled with coaching, assessment, and peer/manager feedback. For those who may require additional support or motivation, or who have defined learning and development paths, Brightspace can provide automated nudges, offer encouragement through badging, and progress them through their learning with the automated release of content and assessments.

To help educators, employers and associations get the most out of Brightspace products and features, we also have hundreds of video tutorials available online, and our team is here to support you 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

As the world navigates the COVID-19 health crisis, educators, employers, associations, employees, and students are learning to adapt and are exploring innovative ways to move forward. In the face of all this change, we are fully committed to helping our customers make the shift to online learning a worry-free decision during this very tumultuous time

Organizations can blend the Brightspace LMS into their unique IT ecosystem and create your ideal digital confederation of tools, content, and applications. Unlike other “walled garden” LMS platforms, Brightspace is open and includes source code libraries and standards-based integrations. This open approach means you maintain easy access to your data through APIs, can download critical datasets, and can incorporate timely insights into your day-to-day workflows.

We are the Canadian learning platform provider that has a very large team of learning experts who are genuinely committed to helping organizations build world-class learning experiences. When you need help building a course or new program or need to optimize the use of Brightspace, we are here for you-our Advisory Consultants, Learning & Creative Services team, Instructional Designers, Technical Account Managers, and Data Gurus love helping our clients outperform. We are a learning company with a broad bench of services unique in this business, making us a reliable and resourceful partner to help you with your needs today and into the future.

If you are looking for guidance as you navigate this move to learning online, we're here to help. Check in frequently to our blog and website www.D2L.com for additional resources, including webinars from D2L and partners that will be sharing their experiences and lessons learned in shifting from face-to-face classes to online methods of training.

For those Canadian businesses in EdTech (technology, content and assessments) - D2L actively recruits educational software vendors, content providers and developers in Corporate, Higher Education and K-12 who share our passion for improving learning. D2L believes learning should be accessible, engaging, and inspiring for everyone. Facilitating learner success and enhancing organizational effectiveness can be difficult objectives for anyone to achieve alone
