Looking for a New Solution
After using Blackboard LMS for 17 years, the management decided to look for a new learning management system that would offer customization options, would be user-friendly and could be deployed with ease. TU Delft opted for a Best Value Procurement approach to the tender, inviting suppliers to propose the best solution to meet its strategic goals. Their approach placed far greater emphasis on evaluating the quality and proven performance of suppliers and their solutions than traditional requirements only based procurement.
The Brightspace platform from D2L includes a number of features that were attractive to the University, including a mobile-friendly user experience that enables students to engage in online, blended, and competency based education programs on a single platform. Since the platform incorporates personalised learning, teachers can deliver their lessons with much greater flexibility and give each student the personal experience they need to succeed. Additionally, Brightspace includes powerful real-time learning analytics to provide data that can help improve student outcomes.
