Brightspace by D2L
On Tuesday December 19, 2017, you are going to see a new look and a new name for D2L.
In line with other institutio
ns, we will now be referring to our learning management system (LMS) as Brightspace by D2L
. This switch makes sense as D2L is the name of the company based in Kitchener, Ontario, while their LMS is named Brightspace.
In December, along with the name-change, you will notice a new look and feel with a clean and modern layout. Don’t worry, the tools you already know and use will work the way they always have.
Some of the key visual changes include:
– A simplified navigation design that looks equally good on screens of any size, a desktop, laptop, tablet or phone
– A consistent, cleaner and more modern design using new fonts, icons and colours
– A new Brightspace homepage featuring rich photography
Instructors look out for information sessions starting the last week of classes. Students can see the changes on the Brightspace page on the Learning Techology Support site.
