D2L and Class Integration Offers Solution for Blended and Hybrid Learning

Education technology company D2L has announced an integration with Class Technologies, maker of online learning software built on the Zoom platform. The goal: to provide a seamless experience across synchronous and asynchronous learning, the companies emphasized in a news announcement.

Class's synchronous learning tools will be available within D2L Brightspace, allowing educators to connect with their learners, take attendance, hand out assignments, grade coursework, give quizzes and polls, and more.

"Our ecosystem of over 1,800 technology integrations offer customers the choice, flexibility and tools they need to deliver engaging learning experiences," commented John Baker, president and CEO of D2L, in a statement. "I am delighted to welcome Class as a new partner, to extend our existing Zoom partnership — and to support new ways of engaging in synchronous learning."

"Now more than ever, blended learning is the most effective modality for online and virtual learning," added Michael Chasen, founder and CEO of Class. "D2L Brightspace's ability to manage and deliver content such as lectures, videos, assignments and assessments 'on-demand', in conjunction with Class' engaging real-time virtual sessions, allows learners to receive the best learning experience."
