General Information

What is D2L and what’s Brightspace?
D2L Brightspace is the full name of our new learning management system (LMS). D2L stands for “Desire to Learn,” which is the founding company behind the creation of the Brightspace LMS platform. In essence, D2L is the company, and Brightspace is the software application.

What can I expect from the new LMS platform?
Overall, you can anticipate a vastly improved more integrated professor, student and SLU community experience! A CUNY-Wide committee, comprising students, faculty, and staff, carefully selected D2L Brightspace as our next LMS for numerous reasons. In essence, it provides a straightforward path for students to excel, offering robust tools, customizable content, and a robust support structure to guide us along the way. Furthermore, it seamlessly integrates with other SLU tools and technologies.


We appreciate any feedback you may have to offer. Your input will help us streamline communication, enhance collaboration, and ensure a smooth transition for all. Thank you for being a part of this exciting journey!
