DEEP CONTENT INTEGRATION
The Brightspace platform is integrated with the Achievement Standards Network (ASN)--acquired by the company this past winter--which houses the industry's largest repository of K-12, higher education, and professional/workplace standards and enables educators to automatically tag content and align curriculum to specific industry standards like Common Core.
D2L has also signed an agreement with five of the major US textbook publishers--
FULLY INTEGRATED ADAPTIVE LEARNING SOLUTION
The Brightspace platform offers D2L LeaP, which helps improve student performance by using language processing and analytics to determine gaps in a learner's skill set. The solution then provides the right tools, content and techniques to address those areas of weakness.
Designed for K-12, higher education, and corporate learning markets, D2L LeaP helps reduce the time and cost of implementing adaptive learning by automating the content-mapping process. Its semantic engine automatically creates unique learning paths for each student. Each pathway has been adjusted to the learner's interactions and performance level, anticipating the content and resources they will need to make progress.
D2L LeaP presents learners with exercises to strengthen their areas of weakness and delivers "just-in-time" learning activities by blending elements of individual instruction, peer tutoring, interactive simulations, and academic advising and content suggestions. The integration with ASN automatically tags content and aligns that content and curriculum to the correct industry standard, freeing up educator time to focus on individual student attention.
D2L LeaP joins an existing portfolio of incredibly robust analytics tools that are unparalleled in the industry, pioneering technology in the areas of predictive analytics and insights to help drive greater retention and student achievement.
GAME-BASED LEARNING - EARLY ACCESS TO A BETA VERSION
Incorporating game-based mechanics, aesthetics, and game thinking helps engage students, motivate action, and promote better learning. D2L now offers a comprehensive array of game-based learning services, including game design, development and integration within the Brightspace platform.
"One of the greatest challenges for any educator is to get students engaged with the content they need to advance their education," said
The service offering includes a content publishing component and a gamification framework for instructors to use when creating courses. The system uses D2L's open APIs to publish all of the relevant content to the institution's learning platform seamlessly, without the need for an instructor to create content topics or unzip files into a course.
