Ovum Names D2L a "Market Leader" in Student Success Solutions in Higher Education

Brightspace Platform Strongly Recommended; Lauded for Proactive Approach Using Learning Analytics, Mobile Support, Market Adoption and Range of Services in New Report

WASHINGTON, DC --(Marketwired - July 18, 2016) - FUSION 2016 -- D2L, the global learning technology leader, is proud to disclose that Ovum Consulting's newly released report, "Ovum Decision Matrix: Selecting a Student Success Solution for Higher Education, 2016-17" ranks its Brightspace platform among an elite set of market leaders. Millions of students around the world use an LMS daily to learn -- D2L was the only LMS recognized for its approach to improving student success.

The report stated: "D2L is enabling its customers to take a proactive as opposed to reactive approach to student success. As a result, Ovum recommends that institutions strongly consider Brightspace Analytics to support student success initiatives. D2L is unique among the majority of its competitors in that it takes a system-level approach across its suite of products and services, with a mind toward being able to take action at an individual level. Not only does Brightspace collate a range of data to predict how students will do in classes, but it also provides an early intervention system and moves beyond analytics and toward the initiation of interventions."

The report was authored by Navneet Johal, Research Analyst, Education Technology at Ovum and a recognized authority in the online learning space. Founded in 1985 and with 23 offices across six continents, Ovum offers a global perspective on technology and media markets and provides thousands of clients with critical insights.

"D2L believes that embedding real-time learning analytics into the normal workflows for instructors, advisors, and learners provides the very best way to link insights to action that keeps learners on track," said John Baker, CEO of D2L. "Brightspace is the clear choice for organizations that care deeply about improving outcomes for learners."

This recognition is the latest of a string of honors for D2L. In March, Fast Company Ranked D2L #6 on the Most Innovative Companies of 2016 List in the Data Science Category, amongst Google, IBM, Spotify, Costco, and Blue Cross Blue Shield. eLearning Magazine recently rated D2L as #1 in Adaptive Learning.
