How to Support Effective Teaching and Learning with Brightspace

Concurrent Session 2

Session Materials

Brief Abstract

Ask ten people what “the best learning experience” means. You’ll get ten different answers. The real answer is clear: educators should be able to teach the way they want. The use of a smart, flexible learning management system (LMS) can help increase student engagement, improve classroom management, and enable anytime/anywhere learning. This demonstration will showcase how D2L’s Brightspace platform supports student success.

Extended Abstract

Ask ten people what “the best learning experience” means. You’ll get ten different answers. The real answer is clear: educators should be able to teach the way they want. The use of a smart, flexible learning management system (LMS) can help increase student engagement, improve classroom management, and enable anytime/anywhere learning. This demonstration will provide an overview of D2L’s Brightspace platform, featuring our new Daylight UI with responsive design, drag and drop, conditional content releases, and automated messages to improve individualized learning and surface important learner data.
