U Akron Migrates to D2L eLearning Suite

The University of Akron is replacing its previous learning management system with Desire2Learn's Enterprise eLearning Suite. The move is designed to facilitate both online and Web-enhanced delivery of courses.

"University of Akron students, faculty and staff reviewed several learning management systems, and unanimously chose Desire2Learn," said John R. Savery, director of learning technologies and scholar/learner services for U Akron. "Clearly, Desire2Learn will best allow our professors to enhance online learning environments, in turn further enhancing the educational experience for our students."

The University of Akron serves about 25,000 students and is part of the University System of Ohio.

In other D2L news, the company also announced recently that the South Dakota Board of Regents (a higher education governing body) has also chosen Desire2Learn's Enterprise eLearning Suite to its more than 32,000 students. SDBOR comprises six universities and three higher education centers.
