SUNY Signs Systemwide Deal with D2L

The State University of New York is partnering with D2L to make the company's Brightspace learning management system available to its full network of campuses. At present, 57 campuses in the system have already opted to migrate to the new platform.

A key driver in the decision was ensuring that faculty and students "have the tools, resources and technologies to thrive — both online and on campus," according to a news announcement. Other benefits include: ease of use; compatibility across all mobile devices; tools for personalized learning experiences; data analytics to support student success; accessibility and inclusive design; integration with academic tools and systems; and robust vendor support.

"It has never been more important to make sure that learners have access to the tools they need to realize their educational goals," commented John Baker, president and CEO of D2L, in a statement. "SUNY recognized that need and took steps to ensure that their students have the best digital learning environment to help them learn, succeed, and thrive. We're proud SUNY is using D2L Brightspace to achieve its vision, and we look forward to making this partnership world-class."

"SUNY is a leader in delivering accessible, equitable and innovative education that is making an impact across New York State and around the world — and we couldn't be more excited to partner with them," added Lee Poteck, vice president of education at D2L. "We are working closely with SUNY to facilitate and support the highest-quality education that helps to transform the lives of students."
