Our client is D2L has changed the way students and teachers at the District School Board of Niagara communicate and work together.
EdScoop reports that the District School Board of Niagara has been using D2L’s Brightspace LMS with great success. Robert Dunlop, a blended-learning resource teacher and member of the IT4Learning Team at DSBN, said students in K-12 log into D2L “as their hub for everything.”
“Students used to get frustrated with navigation, getting to certain sites in weird convoluted ways to handle folders in Dropbox,” Dunlop explained. “Now, with D2L, we take out all that navigation and replace it with pedagogy. That allows us to do more small-group instruction and feedback, and it really changes the efficiency.”
Students are also able to keep in touch with parents through the LMS, and the district is rolling out a new parent portal in September.
