D2L Introduces AI Product for Learning Content Creation

Learning platform D2L is launching a new AI-powered product, D2L Lumi, designed to help educators create course content, assignments, quizzes, and more. Over the next few months, D2L Lumi will be included throughout the company's core products, shared D2L President Stephen Laster, in a news announcement.

"At D2L, educators and learners always come first, which is why we've taken a thoughtful, customer-centric approach to embracing AI," Laster said. "We're committed to harnessing the power of emerging technologies to support a more profound impact on educational experiences. D2L Lumi is the result of this commitment."

D2L Lumi will debut with three core features, with more to be announced soon:

  • Lumi Quiz, for generating Brightspace quiz questions based on course content;
  • Lumi Idea, which suggests new Brightspace assignments and discussions aligned with course materials; and
  • Lumi Practice, for creating practice questions in Creator+ based on course content.

"D2L Lumi fills the gaps between our instructional designers and academic experts. I love it; it is easy to use and has a straightforward learning curve. The accuracy of the questions was good," said early adopter Elizabeth Pearsall, assistant provost at the American College of Financial Services, in a statement. "Given that this capability is integrated, and questions are based on content created in Brightspace, it is convenient to use."

"Lumi Quiz was fast enough to keep up with me. I think that is so key. At no point was I waiting for it," commented Jordan O'Connell, professor at Northwest Iowa Community College. "When I didn't like a question, it was very easy and intuitive to quickly refresh and try another question. It moved fast enough, which I think is really key. It made me realize that I could use this constantly and reliably if I was in course-building mode."

D2L Lumi was "built from the ground up with privacy and data governance in mind" and information on new features will be released monthly, according to the company. For more information, visit the D2L site.
