CEIPA Business School Selects D2L to Personalize Its Education Programs

MEDELLIN, COLOMBIA--(Marketwired - June 28, 2017) - D2L, a global learning technology leader, announces that CEIPA Business School has selected its Brightspace learning management system (LMS) to reach every learner with an easy-to-use, engaging and personalized learning experience.

The CEIPA Business School is headquartered in Medellin, with an additional campus in Barranquilla and a commercial office in Bogota. CEIPA provides face-to-face and online education in Business Administration, Marketing, Finance, International Business, Human Resources, Human Management and Accounting programs. CEIPA is one of the pioneers in virtual education in Colombia, and has been offering virtual programs for more than 17 years. The school has 5,000 students of which 60 percent are virtual.

The institution made the decision to focus on adaptive learning. It spent almost a year researching what adaptive learning means, the impact it would have on students and the best way to deliver it. CEIPA realized it couldn't implement it properly without finding the right technology partner so it reviewed four solutions and selected Brightspace for its real-time analytics, adaptive learning, mobility and blended learning capabilities.

"We believe that students learn differently today. This sounds normal but many institutions haven't changed. Universities continue giving the same class to everyone. We believe that D2L's Brightspace is the best solution to personalize learning and look forward to seeing the positive impact on learning outcomes," said Diego Mazo, President of CEIPA Business School.

CEIPA Business School used Sakai's learning platform for 12 years, and before that used Claroline and other platforms. The school is an innovator in their region -- it was one of the first institutions in the country to offer virtual learning, and had to explain to the Education Ministry what a virtual program is and how it would benefit learning.

On June 5th, 2017, CEIPA launched Brightspace at the school and they plan to expand its geographic coverage to reach more students.
