Aarhus University to use D2L Brightspace as new learning platform
Aarhus University has announced that it has chosen D2L Brightspace as its new learning platform.
A statement from Aarhus University stated D2L Brightspace platform was chosen for its ‘usability and broad range of features’.
Alongside the features Brightspace brings to the table, Aarhus says it made its decision based on the opportunities the platform provides for educators to design interesting, engaging programmes of study, tailored according to students’ individual needs.
D2L Brightspace was named the “Best in Adaptive Learning”
Brightspace by D2L is a cloud-based learning platform, which enables users to set up individualised learning paths for students.
The platform was named the top VLE in Higher Education by Ovum Research and claimed the top-ranking spot in Adaptive Learning by eLearning Magazine.
Stewart Watts, VP EMEA at D2L, said: “With this, Aarhus University joins Ghent University in Belgium, Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands and Huddersfield University in the UK – among many others – in incorporating D2L’s Brightspace within their student-learning experiences.”
D2L will help Aarhus provide the ‘best possible teaching and learning experiences’
Anders Hyldig, Head of Educational IT at Aarhus University, responded to the development with the statement: “The right learning platform is extremely important to staff at the University as it helps us provide the best possible teaching and learning experiences.
“We hope that, with Brightspace, we have the dynamic and user-friendly solution we were looking for. What’s more, there is every indication that D2L will be a strong, long-term partner, as throughout the process it demonstrated a thorough understanding of our needs and ambitions.
Stewart Watts, VP EMEA at D2L, said: “Aarhus University has a clear vision to support students in achieving their learning goals and to empower staff in delivering high quality research-based teaching. For this, it recognises the need for a flexible, dynamic and feature-rich learning platform.
“We are excited to work with Aarhus University and look forward to helping them deliver the best possible teaching and learning experiences in support of their goals.”
