D2L Launches Brightspace Creator+ Package

D2L announced the launch of its D2L Brightspace Creator+ Package, which enables anyone to create engaging digital course content using workflows integrated into Brightspace – saving course creators time, effort and money.

“We’ve listened closely to our customers, and we understand that educators want to create content independently, with no software coding experience. Administrators and instructional designers want an a solution that is more budget-friendly, scalable without seat limits and simpler for learners. With these needs in mind, we developed Creator+ to help empower our customer base to deliver exceptional learning experiences,” said John Baker, President and CEO of D2L. “Each year, we demonstrate our commitment to supporting learning in markets and creating tools that are highly accessible and easy-to-use for everyone, everywhere. Creator+ is purposefully built, in partnership with educators and learning design experts, to support the development of better learning experiences.”

According to Forbes, the average teacher works more than 400 hours of overtime each year. And, an Association of Talent Development survey shows that 67% of organizations believe that having limited resources— time, talent, and money — is the barrier they most frequently face to designing and developing learning content. With Creator+, the need to buy and train on expensive, interactive content authoring software is reduced– helping Brightspace customers cut back on administrative work through solutions that are embedded directly into Brightspace and simpler for end users, to help free up time for them to get back to what matters most – their learners.Building on 20+ years of award-winning course design excellence, the Creator+ Early Access Program launched in May 2022, allowing for important collaboration with education leaders, who provided crucial feedback. Today, D2L is excited to make Creator+ available for purchase.

With Creator+, users can more easily:

  • Use ready-made templates to quickly build content that is beautiful, highly accessible and mobile friendly.
  • Enhance comprehension with the Practices tool, keeping learners engaged with a wide variety of practice exercises and question types
