Honour marks D2L’s third award win of 2020 to date

Global learning technology leader D2L announced today that it has been named ‘Overall LMS Solution Provider of the Year’ for its Brightspace platform in the second annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards program.

EdTech Breakthrough is a leading market intelligence organisation that recognises the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market. The EdTech Breakthrough Awards honours excellence in educational technology products, companies and people.

All award nominations were evaluated by an independent panel of experts within the EdTech industry, with the winning products and companies selected based on a variety of considerations, including innovation, design and user-experience, as well as overall technological advancement for their respective categories.

The Brightspace platform was recognised for its ability to provide personalised learning experiences at scale and that can accommodate growth. It supports educators enabling intuitive course design and building, content creation and effective assignment grading. Brightspace enables personalised learning journeys for each student and can be adapted according to an individual’s progress, action and needs.

“This award is a testament to our team’s commitment in providing the very best learning experiences for our valued customers. I am pleased that their efforts have been recognised in this way, especially among so many respected nominees. Our team works very closely with our clients to build products they love using, and it is truly an honour to receive this award, especially given these challenging times,” said John Baker, President and CEO of D2L.

This honour marks D2L’s third 2020 award, following two wins at the CODie Awards earlier this year, where it won Best K-12 Learning Management Solution, and Best Professional Learning Solution for Faculty and Administrative Staff.
