Brewton-Parker College Chooses D2L's Brightspace to Modernize Learning

WATERLOO, ON--(Marketwired - February 27, 2018) - D2L, the global learning technology leader, announces that Brewton-Parker College, the only accredited four-year Christian college south of Macon, GA, and north of Jacksonville, FL, selected its Brightspace Learning Management System (LMS) to deliver a modern learning environment to both students and faculty.

"As a rural school, we must have an LMS to effectively reach more students and provide them with an educational experience catered to individual learning needs and styles," said Lynn Addison, Chair, Division of Online, Developmental & External Programs, Brewton-Parker College.

"Brightspace represents a considerable step forward for us to deliver the tools we need to bring a higher level of education and engagement for all of our students ¾ on campus or online," said Jonathan Cowart, Director of Online, Brewton-Parker College.

To achieve its learning objectives, the leaders of Brewton-Parker College needed to replace its legacy LMS. The review process, which included Canvas and others, solicited feedback from faculty and staff through focus groups and demos. The near unanimous consensus was that Brightspace is the easiest and most intuitive LMS, with a robust set of features and functionality that will allow faculty to modernize how they teach, monitor and engage with students. The platform's ability to integrate with third-party tools and responsive interface designed to work across any device were also critical components in their decision.

"The leaders at Brewton-Parker College know that, to foster the skills students need to be successful in today's world, the classroom must be transformed into a more personal and engaging learning environment," said John Baker, President and CEO of D2L. "We are honored that they have chosen Brightspace to accelerate this transformation, and deliver a superior learning experience to more students than ever before."
