Desire2Learn and Brightspace

Posted on 8/7/2014 10:12:44 AM

At the Desire2Learn conference in July 2014, Desire2Learn president and CEO John Baker announced some changes in naming and branding for Desire2Learn.

  • The company name is now D2L, and Desire2Learn will be gradually phased out.
  • Brightspace will now be used to describe the integrated learning platform, which is inclusive of all D2L products and services.
  • D2L will remain a brand name for certain individual products and services within the Brightspace platform.

What  does this mean for you?  You will not notice many changes.  You will still use to access the learning environment, but if you are a member of the Desire2Learn Community, you will want to join the new Brightspace Community.
