Xavier University of Louisiana Joins Growing Wave of Brightspace Adoptions in North America

Brightspace Selected Over Instructure's Canvas and Blackboard Learn to Modernize Learning for Students

WATERLOO, ON--(Marketwired - December 05, 2017) - D2L, the global learning technology leader, today announces that Xavier University of Louisiana (XULA) has chosen its Brightspace Learning Management System (LMS) to modernize learning for their diverse teaching and learning environment. XULA leadership selected Brightspace over Instructure's Canvas and Blackboard Learn, because it's highly secure, easy to use, flexible and smart.

"We are in the midst of a digital transformation and our students expect we can provide them with the most modern tools available," said Tony Moore, Vice President, Office of Technology Administration, Xavier University of Louisiana. "D2L's leadership team understands that we require more than just a piece of software, but a partner who will work closely with us to realize our vision."

XULA is a Catholic and historically black university. Its ultimate purpose is to contribute to the promotion of a more just and humane society by preparing its students to assume roles of leadership and service in a global society.

D2L was selected after a rigorous six-month competitive review process that sought input from faculty and students. After a careful evaluation, Brightspace stood out as a robust platform that could deliver the essential tools to transform their learning environment.

"The leadership team at XULA understands that the landscape of teaching and learning is rapidly changing, and to reach every learner, you must create an environment that engages students," said John Baker, President and CEO of D2L. "We look forward to working closely with the XULA team to achieve their vision of a modern learning environment."
