Universidad Iberoamericana Selects D2L's Brightspace to Modernize and Improve Learning

MEXICO CITY, MEXICO--(Marketwired - May 24, 2017) - D2L, a global learning technology leader, announces that Universidad Iberoamericana Mexico City and Tijuana, has selected its Brightspace learning management system (LMS) to reach every learner of the school's 12,200 students.

Universidad Iberoamericana has 2078 teachers and 544 instructors in continuous education, and launched Brightspace in January 2017 at its Mexico City campus. Today with Brightspace, the school offers a more modern and engaging experience to their students: "There has been a positive response as Brightspace offers seamless browsing, an intuitive interface, can link external applications easily and enables personalized follow up with students. It provides a better learning experience," said Ana Maria Berruecos, Distance Education Director of Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico City - Tijuana campuses.

At the end of October 2016, the first stage of training on Brightspace began. Blended, online and micro courses were provided, and within seven weeks close to 1,000 teachers were trained and 700 diplomas were granted certifying proficiency in the use of the platform. The Distance Education Department created and made available for teachers and students learning materials, including digital education and tutorials online.

Learners at Universidad Iberoamericana are also using Brightspace Pulse, an easy-to-use mobile app that gives them exactly what they need to stay on top of their work. With one quick view, learners can visualize their workload, stay on top of deadlines, keep up with discussions and read all their course notifications, including new grades. Students can also view content for their courses and complete their work on their mobile device.

The university plans a second phase of training for teachers throughout the first semester of the year. Approximately 15,000 Brightspace licences and approximately 5,500 virtual classes have been opened this semester.

"We thank the management and academic departments of the university and D2L for the constant support, as well as teachers for their good disposition during this transformation. We are creating a community around Brightspace and we hope to grow it with a common mission: quality education to face the challenges and demands of the XXI century," Ana Maria Berruecos said.
