Educators can access a variety of data to help predict at-risk learners and help them in real-time

brightspace-d2lD2L (formerly “Desire2Learn”) recently unveiled the newest version of its Brightspace Insights analytics suite. With this release, D2L can now aggregate and capture streamed student data from across the entire learning ecosystem (including learning apps, content publishers, online tools, and different learning management systems) and empower instructors to act on one complete view of the student at the moment of learning.

With Brightspace Insights, instructors can now see where learners are succeeding or struggling and intervene in real-time to improve outcomes and degree attainment rates.

The new Brightspace Insights track, measure, and monitor student progress and aim to help improve engagement at every step. With the transmission of IMS Caliper learning events from tools like the Kaltura Video Platform, Microsoft Office Mix and Microsoft OneNote Class Notebook Creator into Brightspace, faculty and teachers now see a richer view of learning activities across all tools.
