WATERLOO, ON--(Marketwired - June 14, 2017) - D2L, a learning technology company, announced today that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Education Competency status. To receive this designation, D2L demonstrated technical proficiency and proven success building solutions that support mission-critical workloads of Higher Education, K-12 Primary/Secondary, Research and Publishing customers.
