D2L, the technology company (Desire 2 Learn, not to be confused with the rap group behind Laffy Taffy), is one of the most popular learning management systems (LMS) in higher education. One of the main reasons for that is that the folks behind D2L believe that the L, learning, is the most important part of an LMS. A learning management system can have all the bells and whistles in the world but if it’s not focused on learning it’s a fruitless effort.

Brightspace helps colleges and universities spend less time managing so they can spend more time teaching and learning. For this, D2L spends lot’s of time understanding the way that teachers teach and students learn. The company starts with a test to make sure that every school planning to implement a Brighstpace system is actually ready.

Once they are ready, Brightspace offers a feature packed platform that allows institutions that teach in a variety of ways. Brightspace can handle a variety of ways of teaching and learning. Whether you’re running online learning, blended learning or competency based education, you can keep everything under the same LMS.

The platform helps guide course selection that will help keep students on track to graduate.  It’s also able to identify at risk learners so that faculty can intervene and help them at the earliest possible moment. This naturally leads to more completion, and graduation.

Adaptive learning is the latest craze in higher education.  Brightspace is already equipped to help colleges and universities implement adaptive learning, delivering the right content to each learner at the right time.

BrightSpace offers deep Advanced Analytics, which drive retention and help improve outcomes.  With Brightspace analytics colleges and universities can:

  • Measure, optimize, and demonstrate progress and achievment
  • Engage and retain students
  • Optimize learning outcomes

All of these traditional analytics help stakeholders make informed data driven decisions to improve student outcomes. D2L takes it a step further and helps stakeholders even examine the footprints that students leave behind in the digital learning environment. This helps understand how students are engaging with Brightspace and how the experience can be improved.

All of the analytics available from BrightSpace are delivered in dashboards that are easy for everyone to understand.
