Desire2Learn has altered their company name from Desire2Learn to simply, “D2L.” The name Desire2Learn will be phased out over the next 6 months. D2L also named their collection of educational tools, which includes their Learning Environment, e-Portfolio, Insights, Degree Campus, etc. to "Brightspace by D2L."
What does this mean for faculty and students at West Chester? Not too much, but you may begin to notice references to Brightspace and the Brightspace Community in upcoming documentation. For more information regarding these changes, please watch the official announcement by the President and CEO of D2L, John Baker.
D2L is the learning management system used by WCU to support online education for faculty and students.
For assistance, please come to the D2L Services office located in Anderson Hall, Room 20 Monday-Friday 8:00am-4:30pm where staff will be available to provide expert support for D2L related issues in person or by phone (610) 436-3350 ext. 2, email, or ticket.
